Check it: We’ve been working with Mason Street City Farm and the Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry.
Since 2013, we’ve had the absolute privilege of working with students from one of Victoria’s coolest high schools- the Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry; the school is focussed on student-centered learning and emergent curriculum. Awesome. PSII students have been hanging out in our workshop, working with our engineering team on a variety of projects.They recently completed a customize-able doorbell using an arduino. Cool, right? It’s get better. Right now they are working a networked, remote control aquaponics greenhouse system for Mason St Farm. Basically, that means putting fish tanks and greens in a greenhouse together, in a soil-free, mostly closed system that is super efficient and nutrient rich. And what is Mason Street Farm? It’s a super rad urban farm and green space education centre- located right downtown!
We are SO stoked to be working with two such innovative and positive local organizations. Victoria gets increased food security, Mason Street Farm gets a top-end aquaponics system, PSII students get to learn about tech AND farming, and we get to dip our toes in to every little bit of it!
Did I mention that we are stoked? We are. Thanks for being awesome, Victoria.
