Aquaponics Grants

Dear Growing Power and Mr. Allen,
     We are students at Ames High School in Ames, Iowa. We are currently in the process of kickstarting an aquaponics build in our school's greenhouse. We are contacting you today because, although we have done some research, our teacher Mr. Todd has shown us your website and what you have done with aquaponics in the Milwaukee area and the classes you offered there as well. We were hoping that you would be able to give us some input on how to go about getting started. We already have a small sized pond in out greenhouse that we would like to use to house the Tilapia. We still need to design, get our project funded, and create a presentation to inform other students on the value an aquaponics system has to offer towards Iowa's ever changing agricultural system. We would greatly appreciate any feedback that you could give us, and would love to work with you on this in the near future. We have included a few pictures of the pond and its dimensions. This is the pond that we would be using as the starting point of our project.
     Thank you for time and we look forward to hearing back from you.
           Will Weber, Elliott Panyard, and Eric Strasser 

We emailed the staff @ growing power and associates to get their input on what we should do for our project.  We are still in the stages of getting supplies.  To do that, we need to write a grant and submit that to someone who could give us money.
