Mirror Image Mentoring is an Urban Agriculture based mentoring program, founded in 2007 that teaches life skills through sustainable practices. Our goal is to use STEM based activities to improve core curriculum, vocational tech studies, health, wellness and the environment. Some of those activities include traditional food growing methods, composting, agronomic, water reclamation, aquaculture, apiary and solar.
Since last fall Mirror Image’s Farm has been working with BCJA students to introduce various aspects of Hydroponics. By teaching growing skills, to yield natural produce, we can reduce the carbon footprint, improve our community’s well being and pave the way to thriving “Green” environments.
