The modern-day organic gardening

Aquaponics is an evolving closed-system food production technology that integrates recirculating aquaculture with hydroponics. It is a sustainable method of raising both fish and vegetables. It is very popular with individuals, entrepreneurs, educators and governments. Furthermore, with this type of indoor farming, you grow substantially more food with less water, land and labor than traditional agriculture. This is a great off to garden even in smaller space.

 


 

Resilient farming system that provides wellness and better nutrition

Aquaponics is a form of agriculture that combines raising fish in tanks (recirculating aquaculture) with soilless plant culture (hydroponics). In aquaponics, the nutrient-rich water from raising fish provides a natural fertilizer for the plants and the plants help to purify the water for the fish.

Aquaponics can be used to sustainably raise fresh fish and vegetables for a family, to feed a village or to generate profit in a commercial farming venture, year ‘round, in any climate. It is a great example of year ’round, indoor farming. It can be done anywhere, providing fresh local food that is free of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. It is safe, easy and fresh!

Natural and sustainable

Aquaponics is a completely natural process that mimics all lakes, ponds, rivers and waterways on Earth. The only input into an aquaponics system is fish food. The fish eat the food and excrete waste, which is converted by beneficial bacteria to nutrients that the plants can use. In consuming these nutrients, the plants help to purify the water. You cannot use herbicides, pesticides or other harsh chemicals in an aquaponics system, making the fish and plants healthful and safe to eat.

Water consumption on an Aquaponic system is about 90% less than in normal open bed circumstances. The water gets circulated within the system and top-up water is required on a minimum basis. Since no soil is part of the system, the plants are also not susceptible to any soil pathogenic diseases other than in a normal open ground bed, you have always the possibilities of pathogenic disease attacking either the plant or their root system, e.g. Nematodes, furious fungal dieses etc.

 

 

What Can You Grow?

  • All foliaged vegetables e.g. Spinach, lettuce, Celery, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.
  • Herbs, e.g. Basil, Thyme, Origanum, Marjoram, Sage etc.
  • All underground root veggies do not work well e.g. Carrots, beetroot, unions, radish etc, it is way too moist and they will rot.
  • Strawberries does also not do well, for it is also too wet for the fruit.
  • Mint does extremely well but do need to be kept in control concerning its growth, extremely vigorous growing and will take over the whole growing bed in not kept in control.
  • Even Papaya, granadilla, tomatoes, cucumber, pumpkin, peas and beans, but you will have to put up trellises for it to climb on.
