A staple for every human being is healthy food. Aquaponics is a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish supplies nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purify the water. Project benefits: Fast growing, large volumes of highest quality fruit and vegetables will be produced and made available to local families, organisations/charities, free of charge or at significantly reduced cost. Managed by students and community volunteers, the project will educate and support the local community to establish and engage in sustainable farming practices. Thoughtfully established, this bold project will provide long-term local community benefit.

Great initiative minimizing the environmental impacts of waste water by reusing, producing high quality food and then recycling the water - the produce is to be provided at minimal cost to the local community - fantastic plan, I hope it can get off the ground. Well done to all those involved.

What a wonderful idea to bring sustainability into the community and class room using the States new STEM incentive for teaching our future generations. Learning how to use sustainability to grow fish and vegetables in a synergistic environment while teaching students to think logically to solve the worlds water and food crisis for a looming 9 billion to feed certainly gets my vote. With SA being the driest state in the driest inhabited continent, well done for the effort to think outside the box and bring our community into a modern and thought out future. Andrew
