CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) - Kindergarten Teacher Andria Powers turned to a Rossville, Georgia company to help teach her students about the life cycle of plants.
Ryan Cox is the Founder of HATponics and Inner City Aquaponics.
He's donating the equipment for 80 Kindergarten students at Brown Academy to grow and take care of their own strawberry plants.
The students will be using a growing system called "Aquaponics."
That's a way to grow plants in water instead of soil.
Powers says the students are using a unique source to water their plants.
"This is going to show our students that we can grow strawberries, in this case, from our aquaponic system that we set up, that will also use the water from the fish tank that we have. So we don't have to actually water them, because it is all inter-connected, and it will be a great visual for them to see that."
Ryan Cox hopes this lesson teaches the students how plants, fish, and water are all connected to helping us survive.
