Imagine growing your own food on your own land, but also enough food to feed your entire neighborhood. Growing Power does just that. They’re able to grow 1 Million pounds of food, year round. Yes! You read that right. They’re in Milwaukee, WI where it’s cold enough outside in the winter to freeze boiling water in mid-air, and they grow food year round in climate controlled greenhouses.
Will Allen came up with the aquaponics system and uses compost to heat the greenhouses. This cuts utility bills, is energy efficient, and allows a simple and easy way to not only heat the greenhouses, but to produce soil for growing. It’s by far the simplest and best system out there for growing aquaponically, and produces such a high yield of crops, that it upends the urban legend that you need 2 acres to feed a family.
