Learning about hydroponics

Sussex County Technical School teacher Mary Rapuano took her life science students to Arthur & Friends’ Greenhouse Project, a not-for-profit job training program for disabled adults housed in the greenhouse at the fairgrounds in Augusta. The students got a hands-on lesson in hydroponics and learned the step-by-step process of how plants are grown in only water and nutrients, saving growers money and space, and in the process saving the environment. Arthur & Friends is a project conceived by Wendie Blanchard, and inspired by her nephew, Arthur Blanchard.
