This self-cleaning fish tank that grows food is based on the theory of Aquaponics. Sounds scientific, and it is. But it’s also surprisingly simple. Basically, the fish feed the plants, the plants clean the water, and people of all ages from kids to adults marvel as science sprouts to life. (Scientifically speaking, Aquaponics is the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a recirculating environment.)
The brains behind this self-feeding, self-cleaning, at-home Aquaponics system are Back to the Roots co-founders Nikhil and Alejandro. Their passion for turning natural waste into food began with their Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Kits (also a Grommet) that use coffee grinds in place of soil. The power of natural waste isn’t the only thing these guys are passionate about. They also believe in manufacturing in America. That’s why they make AquaFarm in their home state of California.
With Water Garden, it doesn’t have to be summertime and you don’t have to have a green thumb to grow your own plants. You can enjoy homegrown greens without lifting a single garden-gloved finger.
