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.
On October 1st NOPL at Cicero will start a challenging four week contest called the Ghost Writer.
Each week the main display table, at NOPL at Cicero, will feature a tombstone with a “cross-word” type clue. Using this clue you must identify the author who has “passed” and submit your answer. Ballots will be available on the display.
On Saturdays, beginning Oct. 11 a winner will be drawn from among the correct answers. Winners will receive a $10 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. The identity of the previous week’s author will be posted on a second tombstone along with an explanation of the clues.
Come give your best guess as to who is speaking to you from beyond the grave!
