Application: Byrd’s Nest
My business would create scalable urban aquaponic farms in the City. The initial site would be a working educational/demonstration facility that would grow fish (talapia),herbs tomatoes, lettuce and collards,etc. It would teach and consult citizens on how to build sustainable aquaponic farms in urban environments, edify entreprenurial and science skills as to the business of food supply, and preparation, and promote the use of technology (ie. solar and computers) to enhace the efficient delivery of the products locally. This business is totally green and energy efficient. It will promote jobs, retail and wholesale business alliances (restaurants, transportation, grocers),provide services (food and training), have profound social impacts (wellness) as well as being profitable, while raising the quality of life for the City as a whole.
