About the Event
Aquaponics is an innovative food production method in which fish and vegetable farming are integrated into one closed agricultural system. In aquaponics systems, plants receive nutrients that are added by the water through the cultivation of fish. After the nutrients are utilised by the vegetables, the water recirculates to the fish tank, making this system a highly efficient water saving farming method that can be utilized in any environment. Through experiences in past projects we have kept improving our designs to optimise production.
Testimonial - "Friendly, well-structured presentation with great educational materials provided and hands-on interaction throughout the day, leaving our group truly inspired about Aquaponics. An accessible solution, harmonising with Nature, to so many of the global food production issues, that anyone can do in their own back yard - as Nick so beautifully demonstrated with his home set-up. Many thanks." Kerry& MIke E.
