  • Tilapia and lettuce — Nothing is wasted

    Growing lettuce is hard work. Those little green leaves that give people an excuse to eat all of the salad toppings — they require a lot of nutrients.

    Fortunately, at Carroll County High School, students in Mackenzie Wright’s agriculture class are learning how to maintain a system that creates, filters and delivers nutrients to lettuce plants.

    Thanks to a grant from the Kentucky FFA Foundation and a donation of tilapia from Kentucky State University, the CCHS aquaponics program is swimming right along.
