The Door Campaign

About Us

We create green learning experiences to promote STEM education in the city of Pittsburgh. 


Since its founding in 2013, The Door Campaign has focused its efforts on aquaponics, a growing field that marries farm-raising fish (aquaculture) with growing plants outside of soil (hydroponics). By introducing students and communities to new fields, experiences, and resources, we open doors to sustainability for communities and new opportunities for long-term employment for students affected by generational poverty. 



Current Projects



Through hands-on exposure to aquaponics, students learn about biology, ecology, chemistry, and sustainability.


Demo Labs

The Door Campaign is working on large-scale aquaponics tanks that will be the largest in the region.


Community Classroom

Small-scale tanks show community members the benefits of aquaponics.
