David Rosentein, Founder of EVOFarm, will be demonstrating the marvel of aquaponics at the Mar Vista Farmer’s Market on Sunday, August 21st from 9am – 2pm, with a micro model of an actual aquaponic farm located just bocks from the market in Mar Vista.
What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a unique approach to sustainable food production that merges hydroponics (soilless food production) and aquaculture (fish farming). The fish provide the fertilizer for the plants while the plants filter the water for the fish. It’s a symbiotic relationship that demonstrates biomimicry in its truest form. Aquaponics has some of the highest yields of any food production method and uses very little water with zero waste. It is highly sustainable and exceeds organic certification standards.
To cultivate resilient communities by producing high yields of produce that are distributed truly locally, using the latest technology, zero waste, minimal water while encompassing best practices in environmental stewardship with economic and social stability.
