Rodrigo and His Pet Toucan

While in Boquete, Panama we stopped over at a hydroponic farm and got to meet Rodrigo, the owner of the farm. Rodrigo was growing a bunch of lettuce and other vegetables in an awesome hydroponic setup.

Some pictures from the Hydroponic setup:

Rodrigo lives at this place and has some pet birds who live there with him. This is one of his birds, a toucan, that we got to meet.

Then he brought out his toucan and we were pretty impressed with it… Check out the video



Meet his toucan

This thing LOVED money! It’s reaching out to grab the wallet with the cash in there.



Have you ever had any experiences like this?

Hi Chris,
I am a student at Santa Fe Community College in Santa Fe, NM. I am currently studying Greenhouse Management with a focus in hydroponics. I have been searching the web for hours and I think this greenhouse is a model I would like to peruse. May I please use your photos and any other information you have on this project for a small Power Point presentation to our class of 17 students.
Thank you,
