I was very excited to see this story about an upcoming aquaponics class to be offered at Highlands Intermediate School (Pearl City) beginning next Fall 2011. They have partnered with Hapa Farms and will be constructing their own system with the help of the school's science teachers. Bravo to Hapa Farms and the science staff at Highlands. I hope we get lots of great pictures from this project.
