Fresh Table Farms - Hyperlocal Farm 1

We are bringing aquaponic and aquaculture techniques to the urban/suburban farmscape, and we have joined a great number of people in this quest. One day we will see farms all over the cityscape and urban zones. This is important. Fresh food is important. We really are what we eat! Hyperlocal Farm 1 is our Beta Production Farm. Here we are testing low capital cost aquaponic farming techniques against organic dirt farming techniques. We have joined with TheFancyChicken.com, to explore low cost organic farming combined with free range poultry. This is an awesome combination and we are so very excited to be here! We think the data we can produce here will be invaluable to our farming technology community and we hope to contribute well.

"Do you really have your nursery on your boat?"

Yes, I do! Thanks for asking. We live on a 43' sailboat and we are berthed 45 minutes away from the farm, so it is most convenient to do the sowing and germination on board. This photo, taken in our pilothouse, shows what will be at least a couple of thousand pounds of peppers and tomatoes. The seedlings are started in peat plugs which I plant in the farm's aquaponic rafts as soon as roots poke out of the bottom of the plugs.

It's a bit of a mess, but we were exceptionally lucky at Fresh Table Farms, most of the fish survived as did our tanks and growbeds. We did lose all of the crops except for the peppers and tomatoes that were in the nursery aboard my boat.

Great Big Story
In the center of Singapore, a man-made horticultural haven blooms. Supertree Grove is a mechanical forest meant to create a green oasis in the urban jungle. With each "tree" reaching up to 160 feet high, visitors have a chance to see their city from the skies.
