About

The Oasis Farmery helps people who are concerned with where their food is from, how their food is grown, and how their food tastes. If any of these things concern you, you have come to the right place.

The Oasis Farmery addresses these concerns by growing local and organic fish and vegetables using their aquaponics system. Aquaponics is a way of growing fish and vegetables in a symbiotic relationship; nutrients from the fish is used as fertilizer for the plants, and the plants in turn filter the water for the fish. More technically, aquaponics combines aquaculture (raising fish inland) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil).

By combining these two systems we can grow vegetables with 90% less land and 90% less water than traditional farming, while growing fish at the same time!

  1. I too attended the Makerspace workshop and it was a lot of fun! I’d like to learn a lot more about what you are doing. Any chance in an on site educational tour through Makerspace? 🙂

      • Matt, thanks for the interest! We’re currently planning our new facility so we don’t have our large outdoor system up and running currently. Stay tuned to hear about the project we’re planning for the coming year, which we would love to connect about when we release more information! In the meantime, happy growing and I hope we get the chance to see your system sometime in the coming year as well!
