Carbon Farming helps Australian agriculture power ahead

Carbon Farming helps Australian agriculture power ahead | Aquaponics Fish Farming by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

Farming has an important role to play in reducing Australia’s carbon emissions and the Government is providing opportunities to those on the land through the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI).

The CFI is a carbon offsets scheme that is providing new economic opportunities for farmers and land managers while also helping the environment by reducing carbon pollution.

Under the CFI, farmers and land managers are able to generate credits that can then be sold to other business wanting to offset their own carbon pollution.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the land is important, as agriculture and forestry account for about 25 per cent of the nation’s emissions.

The CFI comprises several methodologies aimed at creating incentives to reduce emissions from agriculture and increase carbon storage in soils and vegetation.

A successful project approved under the Destruction of Methane Generated from Manure in Piggeries methodology is at Blantyre Farm in Young, NSW.

This project captures methane emissions produced by the manure of the farm’s 22,000 pigs and, utilising a biogas fuelled generator, has lowered the landholder’s monthly electricity bill from $15,000 to zero, and the farm is now earning $5,000 a month selling electricity back to the grid.

De Twaalf ambachten. Oogstrelend waterzuiveren

Toen we ontdekt hadden dat heel wat van de woonschipbewoners die we tot onze doelgroep voor een eigen afvalwaterzuivering rekenden echte plantenliefhebbers zijn begonnen we met andere ogen te kijken naar onze vinding uit omstreeks 1998: het helofytenfilter, dat niet langer met zand werkte, maar met steenwolplaten zoals die in de glastuinbouw wordetoegepast. Wie onze experimenten volgde weet, dat we binnen een paar jaar overschakelden op steenwolkorrels, die in steeds grotere hoeveelheden als vermalen afval bij de tuinders overbleven. En wie is tegen recycling?

SPC trials aquaponics for food production – The Jet Newspaper

SPC trials aquaponics for food production – The Jet Newspaper | Aquaponics Fish Farming by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

The Secretariat of the Pacific Community has been investigating a new food production system known as aquaponics to grow fish and vegetables at its plant nursery in Suva, Fiji.

Work began on trialling a twin grow-bed demonstration system using tilapia fish in January 2012. The system combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics, recirculating the water.

The initiative is led by SPC’s Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems Division and supported by the European Union-funded Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade project and SPC’s Land Resources Division.

The demonstration system is being used to build capacity in aquaponics farm design and operation, and to generate valuable data to establish project viability. Students from the Fiji National University (FNU) and the University of the South Pacific assist in daily operations.

The idea behind the nonprofit came to Morgan after a trip to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. An architect by training, he traveled there with members of Steele Creek Presbyterian Church, expecting to design shelters for some of the 1.5 million people left homeless.

Is Sacramento ready for aquaponics & selling organic waste to indoor farms?

Is Sacramento ready for aquaponics & selling organic waste to indoor farms? | Aquaponics Fish Farming by Youmanitas | Scoop.it

The idea of farming inside abandoned industrial buildings locally is growing. One specialty, aquaponics, in particular is about farming fish or produce either in abandoned industrial buildings or on your industrial-zoned property. Selling organic waste to indoor farms is growing popular because it's about more local sustainability.

Another way Sacramentans serve the aquaponics industry is by collecting organic waste from neighboring businesses and selling the waste to local sustainable indoor urban farms using aquaponics. It's all part of holistic sustainability.

Aquaponics is becoming a popular holistic trend in Sacramento as more vegetables, fruits, and even fish are are grown and farmed inside old, abandoned industrial buildings. How would you like to promote holistic family health in Sacramento by growing both fish and vegetables in areas where formerly there were industrial buildings.
