SUMMARY : In 2012 Ron Morgan (architect / urban planner) went to Haiti to help rebuild structure. He realized that the people there needed to be able to grow their own food. Upon his return he developed a aquaculture + hydroponics model to build 100 Aquaponics Learning Lab / Gardens that teach the next gen of students how to produce fish and plants for consumption. The actual food produced in the 5 fully operational labs is given to Friendship Trays.
Two weeks ago Ron was given 21 weeks to live with a 20% chance of survival with brain cancer. His response : PROJECT 21, his last effort to make a positive impact on the world before he transitions out of here.
