In the last REI Update, we announced our partnership with
Flint to roll out the Flint Aquaponic Network & Youth
Entrepreneurship and Flint City Pop-Ups Co-Implementation Projects.
Since then, Bob Brown, Associate Director of MSU UCP, has been
diligently working with Flint agencies and locals to get these projects
up and running.
Currently they are working on building the learning center
(makerspace) with multiple growing systems that can be adapted to
different environments to facilitate a comprehensive learning
experience. They are also working on articulating the content of
the major elements of the initiative, developing a aquaponics
curriculum, and crafting a proposal portfolio that will be used to seek
development and operating funding from multiple sources.
Check out their progress below:
