Over the past few months we have been producing some short videos about our farmers, growers and suppliers. We want to give our members the story behind their food, how and who produced it. We kick things off with a short video all about the CERES Aquaponic system, which is right next door to the Fair Food warehouse here in Northcote. The CERES Aquaponic system was designed and built by Green Technology Designer Stephen Mushin and Biologist Dr Wilson Lennard. Aquaponics is a water efficient method of growing of fish and vegetables (mostly herbs in this case) side-by-side in a closed system. Essentially the nutrient-rich effluent from the fish is put to good use by fertilising the plants and the water is recycled continuously. The Aquaponic system is fully functional and providing most of the beautiful herbs in the Fair Food boxes each week.
