The objective of this project is to start a self sustainable and 100% organic movement.
Springfield, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2014 -- Jeremy Mann had the pleasure of growing up on a small farm located towards the southern side of the south of Springfield. He has recently started combining his experience as a landscape designer with that of farming. Jeremy's upcoming venture "The 'Ponics Project" is essentially an aquaponics project through which he plans to partner with schools, businesses, and other foundations in the Greater Springfield Area. Some of the most important objectives for Jeremy are to teach the children, training the disabled, and volunteering throughout the community.
The core of "The 'Ponics Project" revolves around the concept of urban farming. When done the right way, urban farming has the potential to become a part of the area's local food system.
An urban farming project can include:
- Animal husbandry
- Fish farming
- Seed production
Urban farming can also play a responsible social role by creating jobs, providing job training, and providing better nutrition and health to the community. Jeremy Mann is highly optimistic that his "The 'Ponics Project" will provide all these and many more benefits. His funding requirement for the project is $20,000. This amount will be spent to pay all expenses leading to the successful start of "The 'Ponics Project."
This Kickstarter campaign will come to an end on December 26, 2014.
