The Buckhead Coalition continues its partnership with Georgia Tech, pledging $2,500 to remove 50 tires from Buckhead creek beds.
The coalition recently announced its partnership with the school for Aquaponics Research.
The research, which has a goal of recycling 1,000 pounds of food waste per day, will explore a sustainable food production system combining aquaculture and hydroponics in a symbiotic environment. The coalition has pledged to pay the student fees for installing a thermal mass inside a greenhouse to control the temperature, the coalition says.
The tires will be used in the thermal mass walls, the coalition says.
