Operation Salsa Symposium Announcement

  1. 1.   Operation  Salsa     Student  Biology  Symposium     Everyone  has  the  choice  to  cultivate  some  of  his  or  her  own  produce  at  home  or  to  purchase  it.  With   the  negative  effects  of  pesticides  used  on  imported  and  locally  grown  non-­‐organic  produce,  it  is  a  more   relevant  time  than  any  for  students  to  learn  how  to  create  their  own  garden.  Conventional  means  of   growing  are  sometimes  impractical  under  certain  circumstances.  Alternative  agricultural  methods  are   an  emerging  field  of  research,  as  the  demands  for  quality  produce  continue  to  rise  and  international   relations  change.  Research  into  gardening  methods  that  do  not  use  soil  can  be  both  practical  and   affordable  to  those  with  limited  resources  or  improper  climate  for  growing  produce.  This  semester-­‐long   project,  which  was  completed  in  tandem  with  the  regular  course  curriculum,  examined  the  method  of   hydroponic  growing  for  tomato  and  pepper  plants.  Students  will  present  the  results  and  conclusions  of   their  garden  project  and  take  questions  from  the  audience.   F r i d a y   J u n e   4 ,   2 0 1 0   t h t h H i g h   S c h o o l   N o r t h   M e d i a   C e n t e r   5   &   6   H o u r s
