Could we make a futuristic Indian aquaponics tower to rival this one in Singapore?
Singapore also has one of the highest population’s densities on the planet – 5.3 million people live within 710 square kilometer. In any case, crowding is something we’re also familiar with India!
At the moment, only about 7% of all Singapore’s food is grown locally. This means a staggering 93% of the city’s food is imported from elsewhere.
We love this initiative from Jack Ng of Sky Greens, who has developed a vertical hydroponic farm – one of the highest in the world.
They are currently growing a variety of greens including Chinese cabbage, spinach and lettuce.
FINALLY the people of Singapore can grow fresh, honest food that has been grown right there in the city!
We (of course!) would love to up the sustainability factor by adding fish tanks to fertilize the crops. (Perhaps the aquaponics dudes at Watercircle could get involved?!) Just a thought guys!
Who’s up for building an Indian aquaponics tower?!
