Quick chemistry update and Sad news

Two things to cover today. They are fairly connected, but be warned, they are both chemistry related. It really goes without saying that the moment you enter into Aquaponics, you are going to get to a point where you have to deal with chemistry… My background certainly doesn’t have much formal study with chemistry, but […]

Survival Fish vs Joel

Cool things are under way at UMD

I’m trying to be un-biased, as Judy is one of the many people behind the push to marketing this new collaboration phase of UMD’s sustainability project, the UMD Farm and the Dining Services, but I find it awesome that things are finally moving in what can be a slow to change system. http://www.umdfoodnews.blogspot.com/ Cool things!
