INMED Aquaponics Planned for Leesburg Mobile Park

The Leesburg Mobile Park community will soon have agriculture at their doorsteps. The Leesburg-based non-profit INMED USA will be installing Aquaponics, a combination of aquaculture (growing fish and other aquatic animals) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil) in one recirculating environment, along with home and community gardening to the underserved community. INMED is a humanitarian, international non-profit organization that has worked in more than 100 countries to build pathways for vulnerable children, families, and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance. This initiative will introduce innovation, food security, home and community gardening opportunities, sustainable agriculture, fresh produce, and nutrition education to the Leesburg residents.

Children in the park community will also have the opportunity to collaborate with members of the Jamaica 4-H Clubs. Additionally, residents will be offered other services including wellness workshops, fitness classes, and other resources.

When great minds and open hearts come together to work toward building more equitable communities, anything is #LoudounPossible.
