ABOUT ZENAQUAPONICS

We strive to live a simple, agro-based sustainable lifestyle. Thus, small-scale urban farming using aquaponics is a critical practice. The 

experience continues to be extremely rewarding. There is no bigger thrill than to grow and eat your own food, and feed others with the extra you pro

duce.

Our growing methods are organic. We exclusively use non-GMO (genetically modified organisms), open-pollinated heirloom seeds; never apply herbicide or pesticide; and feed livestock (blue tilapia) only with organic-certified, based food. We choose Aquaponics farming since it’s organic by default and can doesn’t require much space. In Aquaponics, fish supply nutrients to plants, and plants cleanse the water for the fish in a mutually beneficial, symbiotic relationship. Growing using aquaponics gives us supreme confidence we’ll produce the best, healthiest and tastiest food.

We also intend to share our experience through blogs we post so you could start gaining the knowledge and confidence to feed your own family. We further can help you along as we are builders of aquaponic systems of all sizes — from small patio systems to large commercial systems. Connect with us at info@zenaquaponics.com for more information on system builds.
