New Boston man to share his aquaponics expertise
Griffin, who had decades of experience in the construction industry, built a greenhouse with gravity pipes that carried nutrient-rich water from the pond.
“The Mayans used to have rafts where they grew plants in the ponds where they fished,” said Griffin.
Griffin will share his experiences with aquaponics on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Nashua’s Science Café, a free and informal community discussion group that meets at Killarney’s Irish Pub on Northeastern Boulevard.
Science cafes got their start in Europe and are now spreading across the United States. Sarah Eck, a biochemist from Hopkinton, and Brookline resident and tech industry veteran Dan Marcek started a local network of science cafes, that includes groups in Portsmouth and Loudon.
In addition to conserving resources such as water and soil, Griffin believes that aquaponics will be part of the solution to the global food shortage that scientists and economists say is looming.
