Did you know you can grow your own fish and salad in the same space?
Aquaponics is a combination of hydroponics (growing plants without soil) and aquaculture (fish-farming) to produce efficient, multi-benefit food production systems.

Come learn from Laurie Trotta, Assistant Professor of Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences at SUNY Morrisville, home to a 4,000 gallon aquaponics system that produces 22,000 heads of lettuces and 1,700 pounds of tilapia every year.

Hospice Singers

Hospice Harmony Singers is a community-based women’s chorus affiliated with Hospice of CNY in Liverpool. The 35-voice, non-auditioned chorus has grown significantly since its inception in 1995 when it was comprised of only Hospice employees. Today’s choristers, the majority of whom are not on staff at Hospice, volunteer their time for their love of music and their desire to promote the mission of Hospice.
