I was raised by my parents with the idea of "sharing is caring".
Now that I'm in my middle years, I know that it is better to give not because I have many, but because I know the feeling of having nothing.
This simple Aquaponics design may start prevent poverty and starvation, In addition this will promote good nutrition. Fishes will provide food for the Vegetables (or even fruits), in return they will provide oxygen for the fishes. A very basic ecosystem, with materials that is readily available locally.
Nowadays, we are running out of freshwater fishes, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables. Chemicals like fertilizers are slowly poisoning us. The idea of donating an Aquaponics system to a community will dramatically reduce these issues. The system will only require smaller space versus the conventional farming in big areas. With the use of electricity harvested from the sun, this will conserve use of electricity from coals and crude oils.
Target production date for at least 5-sets is September 1 to 30, 2018.
