Sprouting Good is educating students on sustainable rooftop farming and healthy eating by using a portable rooftop farm education centre which is consists of a 20ft shipping container, a greenhouse. The container houses the aquaculture, the greenhouse contains the hydroponics. The resource saving aquaponic system offers simultaneous fish farming and vegetable growing. With the designw e can grow over 400 different varieties of plants such as tomatoes, salads, cucumbers, basil, mint, eggplant, zucchini. At the end of the season we will also have fresh delicious fish. The centres are extremely economical in water consumption and work without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Water, love, organic fertilizers and organic feed, that’s it.
Students will be educated by our team on how the farm works and will have the opportunity to learn how to do it at home. We believe that if our children can get excited about growing their own food we will end up with a healthier lifestyle than we are currently seeing in Australia. The centre is a closed loop system which makes for easy food production with minimum time requirements spent tending to the system. Once setup the automation system and fish take care of the majority of the work. Our system makes farming fun and easy for students to learn and develop a love for producing fresh organic produce at home.
