Annual Chamber of Commerce Farm Tour

In 2008, the annual farm tour held by the Richmond Wayne County Chamber of Commerce featured local educational explorations accomplished by the Lincoln High School Agriculture Science Department in Cambridge City, Indiana.

Students explained the process of growing hydroponic tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, spring flower production, aquaculture production – raising Tilapia in recirculating systems containing 7,000 gallons of water and aquaponics – growing lettuce with water from the aquaculture systems.
