Coming Soon to the 艾可直播 Achieve Farm!

Thanks to a generous donation from Green Mountain Energy Sun Club, during the Fall of 2022 we will launch our first Hydroponic Farm in Tarrant County at 艾可直播 Achieve! This unit will supply 5 acres worth of leafy greens and herbs in a 40-foot shipping container, and will facilitate countless opportunities for the applied learning of STEM in the context of agriculture.
