Have you heard of aquaponics? It’s the food production method that combines raising fish and growing vegetables to create a sustainable living ecosystem. The plants are positioned above the fish tank. The water from the fish, which is filled with their feces, is pumped into the vegetable bed in order to provide nutrients to the plants. The plants filter out the fish feces in the water and the clean water is cycled back in to the fish tank.
In this video, Will Allen of the non-profit Growing Power shows viewers how they are growing one million pounds of food on just 3 acres using aquaponics! If they can do it, so can you!
