The Black experience in America began with the splintering asunder of our families. Ever since these harrowing experiences to numerous and devastating to the Black family to recount at this time. Suffice it to say that since the founding of this nation there has been an orchestrated and concentrated effort at Black family reunification despite all the intentional draconian and unintentional legal means to breed disunification.
Aquaponicss is the synthesis of hydroponics (soilless gardening) & aquaculture (raising aquatic life). It is an elegant synergy- where two ecosystems are functioning together to produce a result not independently obtainable. Fish provide plants with nutrients to grow. Plants act as a bio-filter and purify the water for happier fish and we humans eat fresh, local food.
Aquaponics is Energy Efficient. In an intelligently built and ideal system the only energy input is one water pump or air pump that ultimately provides lots of fresh food and protein. In a day and age where it takes 10 calories of fossil fuel to get one 1 calorie of food… we think that’s not a bad deal!
Aquaponics Saves Water. It generally uses 90% less water than soil based agriculture because the water recirculates within the system rather than seeps away. The only water loss is through evaporation and transpiration from plant leaves. In a world of declining water resources, this is intelligent farming.
