Lumago Aquaponics

The Lumago is an aquaponics system is an indoor, sustainable farming system that combines aquaponics and hydroponics symbiotically.  This soilless, full-circle, organic farm is a way to grow both plants and fish all year round and uses 85% less water than traditional agriculture.

At Green Venture, the Lumago is used as an excellent teaching tool to demonstrate sustainable farming practises, food literacy, and the nitrogen cycle.  With thanks to the Edith H. Turner Foundation Fund through the Hamilton Community Foundation, we have been able to improve our connection with sustainable growing systems while giving back to our community through education and food bank harvest.
