Jr.Ponics, Lake Worth, Fla: Aquaponics For Kids, Updated

West Palm Beach, Fla.--KidSmart Inc has designed a way to get children interested in growing food. It makes Jr.Ponics an aquaponic/hydroponic educational garden kit that is small enough to fit on a window sill.

West Palm Beach, Fla.
Designed and patterned by co-owner Leon, this small scale farm grows herbs and vegetables with the help of fish and other aquatic animals. It was developed after a customer came into his store and bought $100 of hydroponic equipment for a child.

I met Leon and his wife Shirley at the Gray Mockingbird Community Garden's Open House last month. "We assemble each kit by hand and sell them all over the country," said Leon.

There are two styles: BubbleGarden that just grows plants or FishGarden that uses the power of fish, crabs, shrimp or frogs to help grow plants.

The kits are very easy to use according to Leon and have everything a child needs to grow their plants. The KidSmart Inc website says, "Just add water and pets!"

And if there are any questions, the web site has very good instructions, with pictures, on how to set up the garden. The Jr.Ponics kits start at $39.95 and can be purchased directly from the company site or at garden events around Florida.
