Jon Carter's insight:

<p>A very key example of how Aquaponics is addressed in food short nations, as well as water short. Explains how they have spread out systems among food-short households since 2010. </p><p></p>

Jon Carter's insight:

How an non-profit gains access to the school systems as well as restaurants around the city. Good insight on how the system is being built to scale. HUGE!!!

It is a longer article, but quite interesting to show the development and thinking behind another indoor, urban, commercial aquaponics setup. With several of these ventures failing across the US, it is great to see new ones springing up, learning from past failures and adapting to a changing commercial landscape.

Population growth and climate control place dual constraints on arable land. Aquaponics can alleviate the pressure.

Producing the food we need locally provides opportunities for job creation and civic engagement in meaningful work for urban populations world-wide. Jobs in crop management, technology, computer programming, greenhouse design/construction and entrepreneurship are a few of the training and employment opportunities that arise through the use of the technologies VertiCulture employs in the urban environment. These technologies offer integrated hands-on STEM education for children and adults through interaction with diverse biological and chemical processes, green energy and engineering, all inherent within these sustainable urban agricultural technologies.

Jon Carter's insight:

Good details on future food production rates vs increased population rates. Discusses how it all well come down to the urban centers to provide. Aquaponics can solve these problems though. Here's how...

The mission of VertiCulture is to create aquaponic production facilities around the NYC area that will provide fresh and highly nutritious food to economically and culturally diverse populations. 

Through the pursuit of expanding production capacity, VertiCulture will seek out new land and property to build systems at various locations throughout NYC and beyond. Our goal is to provide a portion of these products at a discounted rate to economically eligible individuals. Additionally, integration of these systems into diverse settings provides the opportunity to educate and train individuals interested in gaining skills in aquaponic food production.

Currently VertiCulture is working on a pilot project at the Metropolitan Exchange Building on Flatbush Avenue: The goal of the project is to create an efficient and productive system that can be replicated in any environment. We would like to be viewed as a team with the technical skills and necessary backgrounds (Ecological Design, Biological Engineering, Environmental Science, Economics, Business Administration) to spread efficient aquaponic systems widely and effectively.
