Bessemer Aquaponics, a soon to be for profit, publicly held start-up dedicated to placing jobs and healthy organic food in food deserts and low income neighborhoods in Greensboro, the Piedmont Triad and all of North Carolina is having it's first meeting and is asking all interested parties to attend.

"When Wednesday: Wednesday April 8, 2014 6:00 PM

Where: In the vacant lot due east of the Guilford County Agricultural Extension Office 3309 Burlington Rd (Link to Google map: ) Long time residents will recognize it as the former location of the Polio Hospital and a nursing home both torn down about 40 years ago and left vacant ever sense.

What To Bring: a folding chair unless you prefer to stand.

John Ivey of the Agricultural Extension Service and I will be there along with anyone else we can wrangle in support of the project. The 33 acre site we'll be meeting on is where we HOPE to place the first location of Bessemer Aquaponics before expanding to other locations in other food deserts and low income neighborhoods all over Greensboro, the Piedmont Triad and the State of North Carolina.
Please come and show your support, find out what aquaponics is all about, share in our vision and consider investing and or volunteering someday.

And please share this post with everyone you know. Let's put Greensboro to work and healthy food in our children in a for profit venture anyone can be a part of.
