Aquaponics: Getting More Out of Less

February 21st, 2012
Charlie Price from the social enterprise Aquaponics UK, explores the role aquaponics can play in the future of our collective food supply. He provides an insight into both the applications for aquaponics but more specifically a new approach to urban agriculture, turning wastes into resources and transforming disused urban spaces to provide not only food, but resilient communities.


Rust Belt Cities and the New Urban Agrarianism

Milwaukee's Growing Power has led the way in demonstrating that community-based food production is much more than beautification or an effort to latch on to sustainability fads. Founded in 1993 by Will Allen, the farm now feeds 10,000 people annually, grows 25,000 pots of vegetables in six greenhouses scattered across three urban acres and runs a food co-operative. Growing Power's greenhouses also feature an aquaponics system growing 10,000 fish at a time. The full article is well worth a READ


Construction on the PortFish Model 3 aquaponics system is moving along well.  The mild winter weather has been conducive for our work.
