Oko Farms

School Based Workshops


Aquaponics gardening provides a great tool for teaching science, botany, and environmental sustainability to students of all ages.

This school-based program is in partnership with Leave-it-Better, an organization that provides a unique educational experience for students that combines technology, environmental science, and visual story telling.

The program includes:

  • Documentary film training

  • The science behind the aquaponics eco-system (relationship between living and non-living components)

  • Aquaponics engineering

  • Installation of a mini aquaponics garden

At the end of the school year, students screen their documentaries as part of our celebration at the New York Botanical Garden.
