Our North Hill Interact students and Rotarians had a great time visiting the Salvation Army Hydroponic Farm - Fort Romig.


Dubbed Fort Romig, the facility is at at 2205 Romig Road.


Fort Romig is a learning center for children in the group's Learning Zone, ages 18 months to 12 years old, who attend preschool, after-school and summer programs. 


They now have a 5,300 square foot hydroponic growing operation designed in collaboration with Crop King of Lodi, Ohio, and the Ohio State Agricultural Extension Office.


They produce over 20,000 pounds of tomatoes and 19,000 heads of lettuce each year.  Proceeds are divided in thirds between a scholarship program for kids, the Salvation Army's Community Table mobile feeding program and Fort Romig programming.


There are many great photos from the day ... click here to view all the photos both Cyndi Kane and Steve Buie took at the event!
