We’re all about aquaponics – an alternative growing system that combines the best of both aquaculture and hydroponics.
Run out of both Brisbane and Geelong, servicing Melbourne, we are a start up aquaponics company that aims to showcase the adaptability and allure of aquaponics so that more people are inspired to grow food locally.
Aquaponics is a great way to farm both fish and vegetables in your own backyard, with real success. It takes advantage of a premium growing environment to produce the freshest quality produce, in the quickest time, without the need to utilise heavy fertilisers or pesticides. The system relies, rather, on a mutually beneficial relationship between fish and vegetables, where the fish provide the nutrients required for healthy plant growth and the plants filter the water for the fish.
Not only is aquaponics a sustainable form of food production but we believe it offers people a connection to and an appreciation for the food they eat. Therefore we want to get as many people involved as possible by making it an enjoyable, rewarding experience. Becuase growing your own food does not have to be hard work.
