Aquaponics Fully Integrated Ecosystem

Half Moon Bay California United States

Ouroboros Farms and Education Center

Project Description


The entire way we produce our vegetables is sustainable.  Our farming methodology is chemical-free, 15x more land efficient, and 20x more water efficient than traditional soil agriculture, requiring 95% less water.  We occupy 1/3 of an acre with 7000 sqft of actual grow space, and can produce as much as 5 acres of soil. An integrated 30,000 gallon fishery provides the nutrients used to grow the crops.
 
Water is constantly recycled and reused over and over again, meaning that the vast majority of usage goes toward transpiration, and very little is lost to evaporation.  Because nutrients and water are brought directly to the plants roots, they grow 50% faster, can be planted up to 10x more densely, and only use 2-5% of the water required for soil.  Plus, you have a protein source in the fish.  Our farms serve as a fully integrated ecosystem that brings perishable foods closer to the consumer and maximizes freshness and nutritional value.
