GoGreen Aquaponics is a local business in Escondido, North County providing a one-stop-shop for all things aquaponics – supplies, custom systems, and most importantly, education. Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture (farming fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in nutrient solution). The many benefits of Aquaponics include: sustainable farming, small-scale agriculture, local organic farming, year-round farming, and education – aquaponics is a great way to teach biology, physics, and sustainability.

Shedd, one of the visionary founders of SeaWorld, recognized the importance of developing and nurturing a non-profit research foundation with the vision “to return to the sea some measure of the benefits derived from it.” In 1995, the Leon Raymond Hubbard Jr. Marine Fish Hatchery was established in Carlsbad, CA, right on our very own Agua Hedionda Lagoon.  Contact The Show Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation 760-804-1969 Program Notes Author: Samantha Richter, COO of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation

Samantha Richter, COO of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation (AHLF) tells you about her and the Foundation's journey in rearing monarch butterflies. Fun facts are instilled within the listening, and suggestions on how everyone can help save this species.  Monarch butterflies are one of the most recognizable and well-studied butterflies on the planet, yet they are diminishing due to loss of habitat. The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation successfully hatched multiple monarch butterflies by planting milkweed (their only food source for the caterpillars) and controlling their surroundings, resulting in a summer full of caterpillars, chrysalises and butterflies.  Contact The Show Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation 760-804-1969
