Aquaponics is the marriage of hydroponics – growing plants in water – and aquaculture – high volumn fish raising – in a system that has none of the negative, if not outright disastrous ecological results of those two by themselves and it can be easily adapted to almost any climate. I have even consulted on projects being done in Siberia!
This is a system that can empower individuals, families and/or communities to raise all of the food, both vegetable and protein, needed to sustain themselves in extremely small areas.
The potential for this system to meet the needs of disadvantaged, developing countries, or any population for that matter, is far beyond any traditional agricultural method.
God loves these people that the rest of the world has forgotten or are overwhelmed by but He is raising us up to bring life giving food to the desperately poor as an open door to bring Eternal Life giving food! But to just 'give' them food is to keep them in bondage to their plight. What this system has to add to those who are giving food hand-outs is the very thing that will set them free to be the People Blessed of God! And it is entirely to the glory of God!
Combining aquaponics with low or no tech power systems and pumps as well as high volume rice production, management and intensive grazing for livestock, potable water, sanitation and related economic development projects, Ahava Foundation has various projects on the ground or waiting to done around the globe (Mexico, Haiti, the Philippines, Uganda, Vietnam, Pakistan, Kenya, Nigeria, Mozambique, South Africa, India, Guatemala, Bali, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Slovenia and now several in the USA).
All I can say is: Hallelujah!!!
If you have any questions about aquaponics let us know!
