Our aquaponics project is in the first stage as we adapt what we know to the context here in the tropics. It is a system with good potential that needs a lot of developing. We are aiming to produce healthy, organically raised fish and food plants consistently with no artificial or bought inputs.
Aquaponics is a diverse eco-system. It is made up mainly of fresh-water fish and the growing of plants in water. The system harnesses the nitrogen cycle and is a cleaver bio converter. This both cleans the water for the fish by eliminating ammonia and it greatly feeds the plants with nutrient-rich water.
Aquaponics uses less water than traditional agriculture. It grows healthy plants faster. It creates a system of protein and vegetables and herbs and fruits. Variety and easy of use gives scope for small holder farmers to implement medium-sized systems and diversify their production.

One of the wonderful things about being here is that growing a wide variety of food just happens almost by its self. Walking around the farm, we will come across various types of ginger coming out from underneath the roots of trees and sometimes in very tall crops by themselves.
