We are proud to be commissioned to build the first aquaponics farm in a school in Singapore at Etonhouse International School, Broadrick. We hope that through our efforts, we can inspire more people to start farming hyper locally and become more aware of how important it is to grow your own food!
The aquaponics farm is an integrated system where fish waste feeds plants and plants clean water for fish. The result is a closed loop system that produces food while simultaneously cleaning itself, without the use of chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
This unique way of growing food allows us to produce more vegetables than we would be able to if they were grown traditionally on land. It also allows us to reduce our carbon footprint because we don't have to use fossil fuels like petrol or diesel for transportation purposes.
Students get to enjoy freshly picked variety of green and red lettuces for their lunch plates, making farm-to-table a reality at the school.
