WICKS

Plant beds are filled with soil on top and water runs through the basement of the beds. Wicks are installed to suck the water up into the soil for efficient watering of the plants. The fish tank water - including the aquaculture waste - runs through a biological filter system, designed by WATERfirst, to settle major solids. These solids can be used as natural fertilizers for plants or added to compost.

From the filtration the water runs into the basement of the plant beds. The bacteria naturally convert the ammonia into nitrates which make an effective fertilizer. The water is now free of all harmful toxins to fish and can be reverted back into the tank. An oxygen pump is installed to ensure sufficient supply to the fish.

Rainwater harvesting tanks can be installed for saving even more in water expenses and to ensure consistent water supply.

REVOLUTION

REQUIREMENTS

The fish produce nutrients for the plants from their excretion and the plant grow beds clean the water which

recycles back to the fish - each aiding the other to grow.

RESPONSIBILITY

The systems can be installed in built up suburbia, normal farming environments or in the most remote and un-arable land that faces challenges in the traditional farming methods.

REDUCE

RECYCLE

Solids left over from the fish production can be used as natural fertilizers or added to compost.

& Unused parts of vegetables can be fed to livestock or composted.

Less water is used in a wicking system than conventional farming methods 

Lessen your carbon footprint by, growing vitamins & PROTEINS resulting in saving on fuel, time and effectively money. 

REWARD

Food security or additional income through growing both vegetables and a source of protein.

Faster growth through wicking resulting in increased yields.

Possibility of organic production.

Personal satisfaction through working with nature and leaving a reduced impact on the environment.
