    Supplemental information:
    The Arizona Department of Health Services has identified school gardens as a powerful means of improving student health and academic success. We agree. Not only does it allow hands on instruction in a wide variety of academic disciplines (see below), it works to directly address student health issues like obesity and diabetes that impede their ability achieve.

    Along with traditional school garden, aquaponics (in-classroom fish and vegetable gardening) is a powerful and cost effective new educational technique that is expanding across the nation including school in Phoenix and Tucson.

Thanks for the great program Doc! 

I appreciated the view of the 911 Baseline Hydroponics set up and wish I could have stayed for the class afterwards. Hopefully there will be more of these in the future

DR. can you share the presentation on google drive or send me a copy. I want to forward the presentation to my local school. My email is If you can't send it that's ok, I'm just to far away to see your presentation.

Greetings Irvin. For some reason I did not see your request till now. That particular presentation was not recorded. However here is a TEDx Talk I did recently on the subject that may be of interest.
