Dream Green Project
The primary goals of the Dream Green project is to maintain and increase services, quality, or community engagement for a healthy, hunger-free community.
The Dream Green Project has formed a collaborative effort for the purpose of growing and raising crops in water instead of soil while also raising fish. The basic cycle of aquaponics is fish are in the water to make waste. The waste is broken down by the microbes in the water to form a type of nitrogen known as nitrate to fertilize the plants. From there, the waste which didn’t get broken down works as plant food. The plants clean the water for the fish to live in a healthy environment in return. The Collaborating organizations includes: Sierra Vista 1st Church of God in Christ, Lowe's, and Sulphur Springs Valley Eletric Coop.
