One of Iowa's only Aquaponics facilities is marketing locally grown, chemical free vegetables and fish raised in a sustainable manner and available year round. All Seasons Harvest is located just north of Cedar Falls and grows lettuce, kale, herbs and Tilapia fish in a six thousand square foot greenhouse.
Fish and fresh veggies make an appealing paring for dinner, but they can also be a great duo in the greenhouse. Host Charity Nebbe discusses aquaponics, which is the growing of crops with nutrient rich waste water from fish farming. Iowa State University Extension fisheries specialist Allen Pattillo and horticulturist Richard Jauron join the program.
