Why Aquaponics and not soil?

Sustainable Urban Farms

Aquaponics New Zealand was founded by Nick and Jen Chapman in 2020 during the Covid 19 global pandemic.


Together we can change the industrial and corporate controlled food system which has destroyed our natural resources, depleted our soils, and sprayed toxic chemicals in an effort to supply demand both locally and abroad.


Together we can feed ourselves and our families. The amount of packaging, processing, energy and carbon emissions going into the current system can be drastically reduced with localised family farming.


We are here to make it easy and simple to provide low maintenance, healthy, organic produce right in your backyard. Conventional food distribution systems emit 5 to 17 times more CO2 than local and regional food production. If that wasn’t enough, commercial agriculture is the largest consumer of water worldwide. Aquaponics uses 90% less water than traditional soil based farming!! This is a solution to urban food security, water conservation, and will be a valuable tool in our united fight against Global Warming.

Start your Aquaponic Journey with us and join us in creating a better tomorrow for our kids, and the planet. Enquire about a system to feed your whanau or get to know Aquaponics and teach your kids or students with our EcoStation.
