Speaker Series: Aquaponics

Feburary 19, 12:30 pm

Dr. Bill Irwin has been a Professor of Biology at Florida Keys Community College since 2011 where he is currently serving as Chair of the Department of Mathematics, Biological and Physical Sciences. His experience, earned through a career leading educational, environmental and service organizations and businesses, has led him to become a pioneer in sustainable living and an advocate for environmental responsibility. He volunteers his time and services locally and globally to organizations that work toward protecting animal welfare, preserving biodiversity and promoting sustainability.

In this discussion, Dr. Bill will present his experiences with aquaponic gardening and suggest ways that individuals and groups might benefit from this simple technology to easily and inexpensively produce healthy, organic food in an environmentally-friendly way nearly anywhere.
