Over the past few decades, to meet the hunger needs of our ever-growing population, we have been producing food in factory farms by overwhelming the planet. When we think about threats to the environment, we tend to picture cars and melting glaciers, not dinner. But the truth is, our need our food poses one of the biggest dangers to the planet. In fact, agriculture is among the greatest contributors to global warming, emitting more greenhouse gases than our cars, trucks, trains and airplanes combined.
Isn't it time we play our part in helping the planet? At Growcerys, we first started by asking what we could do. How do we build a green future? A future where we go back to Nature and live sustainably. We came to realize that we can be more efficient about what we grow, where we grow and how we grow. We believe that in time, small farms will play a big role in feeding the world.
The combination of fish and plants creates a smart sustainable cycle. The plants are fed by the poop of the fish while the plants purify the water of the fish. A win-win situation!
Water for plant growth and battery power are the only input required. In return, you are provided with delicious organic produce and healthy fish.
By switching to aquaponics, we chose to lead a sustainable lifestyle and help build a greener planet.
