Aquaponics is a dynamic fusion of aquaculture and hydroponics, where fish and plants thrive together in a harmonious ecosystem. In this innovative system, fish are raised, and plants are grown without soil, all within one integrated setup.

This symbiotic relationship commences with the waste produced by the fish, which undergoes filtration and serves as a natural fertilizer for the plants. As the plants absorb these nutrients, they play a crucial role in water purification, facilitating a self-sustaining cycle of nourishment. One of the remarkable benefits of aquaponics is the significant reduction in gardening tasks, if not their complete elimination, allowing for more time for more enjoyable aspects of caring for the system.

In our greenhouse, we employ a raft-based aquaponics system, where plants float atop nutrient-rich water pools. This setup provides an ideal environment for cultivating a variety of crops, particularly salads. We currently cultivate five different types of lettuce - butterhead, summercrisp, romaine, and red/green oak - all thriving in this nutrient-rich aquatic environment.


Aquaponics truly embodies sustainable agriculture by seamlessly integrating fish and plant cultivation, offering a bountiful harvest while minimizing environmental impact.
