Aqua Greens believes that to be truly sustainable we must treat people, resources, environment and communities as our most valuable assets that we have.

Aqua Greens

Our company is dedicated to making our city a better place to live both today and for years to come. Our mission is to enhance and to empower our communities with fresh and local products while protecting our natural resources and reducing our environmental impact.

Through aquaponics, we can harvest fresh, locally grown organic greens and herbs such as arugula, basil, lettuce and mint to name a few. The benefits of our system reduces water consumption by about 90% of conventional farming methods. Aquaponic roots are submerged in water 100% of the time allowing them to receive constant nutrients resulting in plants that grow bigger, faster and healthier than plants grown in soil.
