Carol - Although we do not use animals over ponds in our system, we do use
an integrated approach, and one that is easily adaptable to school projects.
All is indoors, fish are raised in tanks, and plants grown in beds filled
with gravel. All are constructed of easy to find materials, and if the
school has a greenhouse available, much of the basic expense is cut out.
Please check our web pages at www.townsqr.con/snsaqua, review our system,
and if you think it will work for this site, let us know if we can help
further with this project.
