North Tulsa is known for being a food desert, but students at Monroe Demonstration Academy learned how to make a difference and grew their own fresh produce.
“Basically, we water the surface for three days and the bottom for three days, so today we are watering the bottom,” said Monroe student Tristan Clehr.
Clehr and his classmates learned how to farm using aquaponics.
“So just pull this up and pour the water in,” he said, pouring water into the microgreens. Thanks to Food On The Move, students learned how to grow all sorts of things like tomatoes and okra. They even raised fish.
