In 2009 our focus will be agriculture in space and on the ground. We will explore the benefits of the new agriculture techniques as they will be employed in space and here on Earth. There will be hydroponic and traditional agriculture demonstrations and cooking demonstrations with hydroponic foods grown right here in Monroe County. Hands on fun will explore hydroponics and other aspects of space. As the Space Port shapes up we will post more information here. Consider volunteering to help . We need people to help build the exhibit and teachers to supervise the hands on lessons.
