The Growing Network- WI-Kerala Aquaponics Connection s is a collaborative effort in partnership with Sweet Water Foundation, a non-profit aquaponics academy, UW-Madison, and Mahattil LLC, that seeks to introduce aquaponic farming- to communities in Kerala, India. Beginnning in June, 2012, 8 UWM students, accompanied by Sweet Water Foundation and Mahattil LLC staff, began the design, construction, and dissemination of aquaponics in the City of Ernakulum, with direct support and partnership with St. Alberts College. The students work will culminate in a fully-operational system being constructed at St Alberts College, and integrated into the College's Aquaculture curriculum.
