Green Urban Farming Will Save Our Planet

Aquaponics is The Future of Food

We believe Green Urban Farming is the future of agriculture and that recirculating growing systems are the future of food production globally. Recirculating farms reuse the precious water field farming contaminates with nitrate fertilizers.  Green urban farming could be the 21st century technology revolution.   The argument against traditional farming for common garden vegetables is persuasive.

Hydroponics, Aquaponics - What's The Difference 

It is worthy to note that Hydroponics and Aquaponics are both recirculating methodologies,.  Hydroponics, however adds all plant nutrients to the system.  Aquaponics alone adds no nitrate laden commercial fertilizer as it relies mainly upon the natural effluent of fish to fertilize the vegetable field.  In addition unlike its cousin Aquaponics produces high quality protein containing B12 so necessary for human nutrition. 

Why Green Urban Farming?

Traditional soil based farming is far too wasteful and environmentally unfriendly as it is carbon fuel dependent, greenhouse gas producing, and environmentally degrading.  Traditional soil farming consumes critical natural resources specifically clean fresh water.   Furthermore long food supply chains are increasingly vulnerable to both natural and man-made disasters. Recirculating farms are virtually impervious to such interruptions.  Green urban farms are highly efficient and effective, as well as dependable and bio secure.

Beyond Sustainability Application of green sustainable technologies for both renewable energy and storm water reclamation are essential elements in the green urban farming paradigm.  Green urban farming is beyond sustainability.  It is potentially a restorative technology that will return our small blue planet to health and prosperity.
