Fresh Cherry Tomatoes From Local Aquaponic Farm Compliments Story Time


On Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 8:15 a.m. at Greenbrae Elementary School Multipurpose Room, Dayton Valley Aquaponics is partnering with three local organizations to accommodate “Breakfast with Books,” a monthly farm-to-school event hosted by Spread The Word Nevada. Dayton Valley Aquaponics will be bringing fresh cherry tomatoes to complement story time with an agriculture-accurate book read by Nevada Department of Agriculture Director, Jennifer Ott, I Will Never Not Eat a Tomato.

This event is to raise awareness of locally grown foods while learning about agriculture.These organizations aim to provide elementary students with advanced early childhood literacy and the opportunity to learn about the importance of where their vegetables come from.

“We love when people get excited to learn about the farm-to-table aspect because we get to share the benefits of aquaponic farming and just how delicious vegetables can be all year long!” said Trevor Birba, DVA Business Manager.

“To partner with other local organizations that focus on agricultural education is so important to us here at Dayton Valley because we strive to be involved with the community in any way that we can,” said Thomas Wheet, Operations Coordinator.
