Chris and I are excited to share our new plan with you all. We have a project that we hope will inspire you.
Wild Food is so popular now that we would like grow some of these ingredients sustainably and supply local businesses. We have found a way of growing that makes complete sense. – It uses Aquaponics. We’re going to use UK river fish (Perch) …so no need to heat the water! And grow off grid in a polytunnel, on our land in Yorkshire. We are so inspired by this compact, energy efficient way of growing that we will teach as well when we are up and running. In the meantime, if we get the funding, the technical development of the Off Grid system and the information on growing shade tolerant plants will be freely available to everyone online. This could possibly help with growing projects in urban situations with limited power supply and in remote places where the sun doesn’t always shine. We have technical support from the amazing guys at the Aquaponics Lab in Manchester.
Our Kickstarter campaign for ‘The Wild Food Aquagarden’ has gone live! Hope you can spare a minute to have a look through it. We have all sorts of rewards for backers from small gifts to party invites etc etc.
Hope you’re interested, please share this with anybody else you think might be too.
Thanks and kind Regards Rose and Chris
