    in Music

    PACERS Club @http://floralalockhartpacers.wordpress.com Florala/Lockhart PACERS Chapter

    PACERS assists communities and schools to offer its nationally-recognized programs in science, entrepreneurship, writing, visual arts, community history, music, drama, and publishing.

    Aquaculture Students Present…Aquaculture

    Students are involved in growing tilapia, catfish, Koi, goldfish, and rainbow trout. They are responsible for feeding the fish, flushing filters, and testing water quality. In the spring, students spawn goldfish and Koi. Each year the tilapia fingerlings are collected to replenish our quantity. The tilapia are cooked at the yearly fish fry.

    The fish waste from the filters is used as fertilizer on our garden next to the fishery. Students raise plants in hydroponic beds inside and outside the fishery.

    Take a tour of the fishery by clicking here.

    We are very proud of our aquaculture program. It is one of the few programs of this caliber in the state.Project Coordinator: Jeannie Ward Community Chapter Volunteer: Teresa Jackson

    Small Scale Organic Farming

    in Health

    Archi's Acres and VSAT are the result of two passions shared by two passionate Americans. Through their farm, Colin and Karen Archipley have found a way to support sustainable agriculture while serving our nation’s veterans. Colin and Karen were able to turn a run-down avocado farm in the hills above the scenic southern California city of Escondido into a state-of-the-art, organic, hydroponic greenhouse operation. The small farm now produces living basil, kale, avocados and more for the local market. What’s more, the Archipleys had the vision for an entrepreneurial incubator for transitioning veterans. With unemployment for veterans twice the national average and the country in dire need of new farmers, the Archipleys committed to the creation of the Veterans Sustainable Agriculture Training (VSAT) program.
    Since founding VSAT in 2007, the Archipleys have trained more than 100 veterans for careers in sustainable agriculture and other sectors in the food supply chain. Now, Archi’s Acres is rolling out its VSAT program at locations nationwide. Karen and Colin have transformed their vision into the first local company with a national footprint.
