We’re very excited to announce a number of new members to the Oasis Farmery family. Wednesday night, a close friend of ours, Gracen Johnson, put on a great vermiculture workshop at the soon-to-be-open Fredericton Makerspace. For those unfamiliar, vemiculture (or vermicompost) is essentially composting with worms. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it produces exceptionally fertile soil for planting, so of course Andrew and I participated alongside all the other worm lovers. It’s safe to say we too are now converts to the worm-loving cult, and we’re pleased to share that we now have two living vermiculture systems running, both of which will eventually be used to support the growth of our plants.
The workshop was an exceptionally exciting night for us, only made more enjoyable by watching all the children light up at the sight of worms and, of course, power tools. Andrew and I think power tools are great too but we’re a little more enthusiastic about finding ways to incorporate these two new working systems into the Oasis Farmery. The worm castings produced can be used on our plants, which mean healthier plants for us and better tasting ones for you!
Another major development this week at Oasis Farmery is our shift towards manufacturing smaller, more manageable aquaponics systems for domestic use. These new miniature systems are some of the easiest and most efficient ways to grow home plants and produce, designed by Andrew so carefully that essentially no setup is required. Grab some fish, fish feed, seeds of your liking, plug in the system, and you’ll be growing aquaponically at home in a snap! If you’d like to know more about these limited stock models, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the promotional code: OASISBLOG in your email for $50 towards your home aquaponics system!
We weathered hurricane Arthur, this hot Fredericton weather hasn’t slowed us down, and we’re about to release our new domestic aquaponics kit. The energy around the Oasis Farmery is infectious and we’re looking forward to some exciting developments in the weeks that lay ahead. Until next time, eat well and be happy!
