Give your future self the gift of better tasting organic food grown in a near maintenance free environment. Though it takes longer to put these garden beds in, they last for decades with no tilling or need to add fertilizer. After a few years, you don’t even need to irrigate these raised Hügelkultur garden beds.
Simplistically speaking, these are nothing more than piles of wood covered in soil. You can help save the world by doing carbon sequestration around your home with Hügelkultur garden beds. Enjoy the lack of needing to bend over with these raised beds during harvest times.

We are imitating nature’s principle, where varied types of plants, birds, and fish, and other aquatic flora and fauna are integrated for production. These are combined in such a proportion and pattern that each element helps the other; the waste of one is recycled as a resource for the other.
Hens are placed on top of the pyramid, which leaves its waste straight into the fish tank, which helps in the production of zooplanktons and phytoplankton’s hence feeding fishes. The solid waste of fish and hen gets into the biofilter, where ammonia waste gets converted into nitrates.
This nitrate-rich water now passes in the hydroponics system nourishing plants; in return, plant roots purify the water and return back into the fish tank which creating a closed-loop re-circulatory system.

Literally speaking, Aquaponics is putting fish to work. It just so happens that the work those fish do (eating and producing waste), is the perfect fertilizer for growing plants. And man, fish can grow a lot of plants when they get to work!
One of the coolest things about Aquaponics is that it mimics a natural ecosystem. Aquaponics represents the relationship between water, aquatic life, bacteria, nutrient dynamics, and plants which grow together in waterways all over the world. Taking cues from nature, aquaponics harnesses the power of bio-integrating these individual components: Exchanging the waste by-product from the fish as a food for the bacteria, to be converted into a perfect fertilizer for the plants, to return the water in a clean and safe form to the fish. Just like mother nature does in every aquatic ecosystem.
