Nature Kids #WindowFarm @QueensLibrary Sunnyside

This week at the Queens Library at Sunnyside, during the Nature Kids program, we completed our two column WindowFarm system. We are growing Swiss chard and collard greens in the stacked hydroponic system placed inside the window.
The children enjoyed looking at the different seeds, adding the nutrient solution and helping to put the WindowFarm together. I look forward to installing a similar system at the Long Island City Branch during the new environmental science program I am teaching to teens.
