Event Description

What is Aquaponics? It's a sustainable recycling of nutrients between a pond growing edible fish (Aquaculture) and beds with vegetables growing in nutrient-rich water (Hydroponics). Totally organic, totally sustainable and using far less water than any other farming method, this is the backyard food production system of the future. Speakers are Jamie and Eileen Brown.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
