Eagle Scout Project
Hercules Fence was proud to support Justin Bussard, an Eagle Scout Candidate from Boy Scout troop 395 out of Finksburg, MD as he completed his leadership project, a requirement to qualify for his rank of Eagle Scout. Justin’s project was to create an aquaponics system which would be located at North Carroll High School in Hampstead. An aquaponics system is a series of tanks that creates a system for farming fish and plants together in a mutually beneficial cycle. The Science Research program at NCHS will utilize the aquaponics system to conduct studies on the fish and the growth of plants. All produce grown will then be donated to local food banks. A portion of the system was scheduled to be located outside the school building and needed to be secured for safety reasons. Hercules Fence was happy to donate the fence materials that were required to build a 16 x 16 x 8 foot enclosure around the system. Hercules Fence was happy to partner with the Boy Scouts of America and North Carroll High School on this important project.
