Future Teachers attend 2017 FFEA State Conference
Select student from the St. Johns County Academy of Future Teachers attended the 2017 Florida…
Biotechnology I students headed out for a Field Study to GyoGreens and PV Community Center to hear about Mosquito Control on January 10th.
20 first year students attended and learned about sustainable agriculture in Ponte Vedra Beach. GyoGreens shared its practices of a sustainable farming method which combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals – fish – in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. All produce is grown naturally and without the use of pesticides. They rely on beneficial insects and companion planting to avoid using pesticides. After the presentation, the students met with educators from Guana Mosquito Control to discuss advances in local and national practices.
