|Tilapia at Urban Organics|
On August 15, there was big excitement on the East Side as Urban Organics received its first shipment of 4,000 young tilapia fish at the rehabilitated stock house building on the former Hamm’s Brewery campus at Payne and Minnehaha. The fish are making their new home in one of several tanks specifically outfitted for their needs. They will grow up to become a tasty dinner option at local restaurants and grocery stores and their by-products will also help fertilize the organic vegetables that will be grown by Urban Organics in the same building.
It is great to see all of these new neighbors working together to provide fresh, locally made food and beverages for our community. We are happy to welcome them and we can’t wait for the National Night Out party on their block!
