Michael Musoke began Aqua Organics in 2007. I, Miriam, whom most of you know me from the market, joined my husband in 2012. It is a family farm that is dedicated to promoting practical solutions. RECYCLE is our motto. We utilize and combine solar energy, rain water catchment, and Aquaponics to greatly reduce our footprint on the environment. Aquaponics blends aquaculture with hydroponics to maximize production while reducing the negative side effects of most traditional farming disciplines, such as the hazards of fertilizers to the environment and over use of water. It’s a re-circulating system, the nutrient rich water from the fish farm is piped to the hydroponic system where the vegetables act as a filter and clean the water by taking up all the nutrients and return it to the fish house. This eliminates expensive filtration devices and expensive nutrients. We raise Tilapia, Crappie, Koi, Cichlids, Australian red claw craw fish, and other tropical fish in our tanks. Vegetables we produce are mostly leafy greens, multiple Lettuce varieties, Kales, Tomatoes, Swiss Chard, Celery, Green Onions, Mint, Collards, Green Beans, Peppers and more! We Love Feeding the Community With un-certified but Organically Grown Produce! See you Saturdays at the Lakeland Market!
