Aquaponics and the food revolution. Grow organic produce AND fish

It's no mystery that civilization began when people learned how to grow and breed their food. Early agriculture predates Mesopotamia by thousands of years; since then there have been many advances in food production. One recent development that has been implemented on a large scale is hydroponics: a technique that is soil-less and uses nutriated water to feed the plants in a suspended system or in a growing medium(gravel or clay balls). This technique was mainly developed to save water but there are also some limitations to growing hydro including the need for external and possibly chemical based fertilizers and chemicals.

Aquaponics, however, uses an all natural cycle to produce the food that your plants need: fish poop! Aquaponics is very similar to hydroponics except that you have live(and edible if you want) fish living in your grow system. With this all natural and sustainable technique, you will use 95% less water than conventional gardening, never have to buy soil or nutrients again, and grow both organic produce and organic edible fish at the same time.

This video is a quick introduction to aquaponics. We will be writing some more in depth articles and posting more videos about aquaponics in the coming weeks and months so make sure you sign up for our email list if you'd like more info about it!
