I have just seen the photo in the blog spot newsletter. The plants look awesome and the children are to be congratulated on their effort and success.
I notice Ashley said the strawberries would die over winter in the hydroponics. This will only happen is the system is turned off.
That being the case new strawberry plants would need to be purchased and installed. Strawberries produce their best crop in the 2nd and 3rd year so by keeping the hydroponics going a bigger crop should be produced next season. The plant take up less nutrients in the winter months so would need less frequent attention.
I would be happy to come out and talk to the overseers of the project if the is what you would like.
They children have done a great job and they should be very proud of their success.
