What if there was a way to produce an abundance of organic food using 98% less water, while producing up to ten times more food in the same amount of area and time.
What if you could achieve this using 1/4 the amount of energy? Imagine producing organic food in a system that does not require fertile soil, saves you labor, makes you a good living and is incredibly sustainable. Well the exciting news is that such a system of growing food exists! It's called Aquaponics.
Aquaponics is one of the most productive and sustainable food production systems in the world! It is a combination of Aquaculture (farming fish) and Hydroponics (growing plants with out soil) in which both fish and plants benefit from one another! The production levels of Aquaculture and Hydroponics combined far exceed that of either system alone.
Does all this sound too good to be true? Want to know more?
Come listen to an in depth exploration and learn about this incredible system and its successes and applications around the world!
At a time of global climate change, depletion of resources, pollution of water and huge losses of top soil worldwide, there has never been a more important time to learn about Aquaponics!
