The Farmory will work with school staff to train students in how to operate and care for the fish and plants as part of their curriculum.

"Students are actually going to be able to learn to grow food. They're going to learn about a sustainable farming methods, aquaponics and then they're going to be introduced to this as a career opportunity, which is something that's really different and creative for agriculture," said Farmory program director, Alex Smith.

The Farmory is a campaign to bring local and sustainable indoor agriculture to Northeast Wisconsin.
