PortFish, Ltd will be assisting Nathan Ugoretz and his Port Washington High School class in the development of a vegetable garden outside their school’s cafeteria. PortFish plans to till a space and provide deer fencing and metal stakes. Nathan’s class will provide a gate for the enclosure and the student-power to propagate and nurture the plants.
Centered round the fundamentals of Human Globalization, Ugoretz aims to focus his Social Studies class on the stresses of agriculture now and in the coming future. They will be planting seasonal produce to demonstrate the limits of what may be grown in our South Eastern Wisconsin climate.
Nathan expects several of his prospective students will maintain the garden through the Summer and into the Fall as the 2014-2015 school year begins.
