The Schoen Family Greenhouse
Imagine a greenhouse that produces vegetables and fish in one system!
CISS is making a dream come true through a generous donation from the Schoen family in honor of their wife/mother Maddie Schoen. This will bring a HydroCycle Aquaponics Systems to our greenhouse, allowing us to take advantage of the natural biological functions of both fish and plants. As the fish fertilize the system’s plants, the plants purify the water, leading to low-maintenance systems that produce natural, pesticide-free veggies and protein!
Our job trainees for Mulberry Farms & Food will work together to maintain this Greenhouse and garden needs.
In 2021, we started to expand this project to an urban agrihood, with potential for producing dozens of products and meals for the public consumer. In the next couple of months, groundbreaking for the Schoen Family Greenhouse project will begin.
We are excited to begin construction on the Schoen Family Greenhouse and could not have made this possible without the Schoen Family and our donors. We still have projects related to the greenhouse that needs funding. Would you consider helping us reach our goals? Donate today. Thank you in advance for your support!
