It doesn’t get any more local than growing food in your home. Most food travels thousands of miles to get to our plates and by the time it arrives it has lost much of its nutritional value. Why not offset your family food budget, help the environment and grow your own fresh fish and vegetables?
Growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs will provide you the most nutrient dense food possible. Aquaponics is a natural ecosystem without any harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides used in commercial agriculture. Feel confident that you know exactly what’s in the food you’re eating because you grew it yourself!
Food independence and security is increasingly important in these changing times. Aquaponics is one way of living a more self-reliant lifestyle. By adding in solar powered systems and energy-conserving building practices, we can start to see the possibility for everyone to grow their own food.
