Ron Morgan And The Story Of '100 Gardens'

Dec 11, 2015

When Haiti was hit with a devastating earthquake, Charlotte architect Ron Morgan knew he had to do something. So he went to Haiti and decided to create aquaponic gardens. These gardens would not only grow crops but fish, too, and provide people in Haiti with a sustainable way to feed themselves. We hear more about that and why he needs your help.
