The goal of this project is to marry the traditional with the modern by recycling a renewable resource within farming communities of Telangana state in India. Minor irrigation ponds are man-made banked earth structures used to store rainwater, and have been in use in Telangana for centuries. These ponds have to be de-silted to keep up their water storage capacity, with the silt being applied to agricultural land in place of artificial inputs (fertilizers and pesticides).

With seed funding from U-M’s Dow Distinguished Awards for Interdisciplinary Sustainability Program, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Grobbel is using a vacant house in Detroit to cultivate approximately 400 shrimp from larvae, distribute the mature shrimp within the city, and demonstrate aquaculture as a viable way to address the scarcity of locally grown seafood, while simultaneously finding productive uses for vacant property in the city.
