100,000 POUND PROJECT

Nile Valley Aquaponics is designed to address the food desert in Kansas City, Mo by producing Fish and Vegetables in a controlled sustainable environment.

Aquaponics is a unique, synergistic growing technique in which fish and plants are grown together, mimicking a natural ecosystem. The nutrient rich water from the fish tanks provide an abundant fertilizer for the plants. The plants, in turn, clean and filter the water that returns to the fish tank.  Aquaponic gardening uses less than 10% of the water consumed by traditional soil based growing methods and can sustainably produce food that is 100% organic, with no worries about chemical fertilizers, pesticides or mercury.

On the east side of Troost, that reality is vividly so. One thing that shows the heart of the people who dwell there is the remnant of those who have fought against this plight. I was recently able to sit down with one.

Capture2Fish — thousands of them — come to Kansas City food desert

Hardly a day goes by that somebody doesn’t yell over at the bunch working on what used to be a vacant lot at 29th Street and Wabash Avenue.

Not much new goes up around there. So when somebody digs long, grave-deep trenches covered with elaborate framework and Egyptian drawings, people in this neighborhood want to know what’s going on.
