Solar Possibilities at Unity Gardens

"As we grow out at the LaSalle Square Unity Garden it will become necessary provide some heat for our new greenhouse, power pumps for our aquaponics tanks, and lights for our discovery center. So how do we do this and still keep the cost of providing healthy food low?

... Some thoughts are to create an off grid system to power our first greenhouse, and maybe look into a future solar array that could maybe even have a payback to Unity Gardens. Both options make our project more sustainable. This is so exciting we can add an educational component and show the benefits of Solar Power. Imagine what the future holds."
