Cheyene Keniston and Ryan Nowshiravan, Sacramento State seniors majoring in environmental studies, are leading a program at Luther Burbank High School that educates students on aquaponics systems and urban agriculture. Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture, the propagation of aquatic species in a large tank or pond, and hydroponics, the propagation of plants in a non-soil-based system using liquid nutrients and chemicals that are fed to the plants through water.
