Urban Green Farms ensure that their motto of a sustainable way of living and desire for a cleaner and greener earth not only stays till them but spreads way beyond out to the masses. Their innovative ideas in this context have surely been successful in catching all the right attention. Their positive attitude and continuous effort to make products that are organic and farms that are sustainable are unmatchable. Aquaponic and Hydroponics are two of the techniques or systems which they have very interestingly kind of brought together. They focus on the benefits of having aquatic life along with plants. Some of the biggest advantage is saving water which already is a scarce resource in the world. If you grow plants you need to water them daily, but if you grow the very same plants together with your fish tank and aquaponics fish, this means that the same water can be used. Secondly, this entire system is extremely energy efficient. Thirdly, both the plants and the fish live in a symbiotic kind of an environment where they both provide benefit to one another. All the waste produced by the fish can be consumed by plants as nutrients and plants on the other hand filter the water making it apt for fish to live in.
Each business and organization has certain motivating factors that keep them going, in case of Urban Green Farms, the passion lies in their desire to make this earth cleaner and greener. They want to create a positive impact on the lives of those living and those that are yet to come in this world. To do so they have initiated certain services and products, some of which are as follows: they began a drive known as “Zero Food Mile”, this basically was designed to make people realize that how far away food is grown from where they live and the transportation costs money and most importantly the fuel consumed adds on the greenhouse gases present in the air. The simplest example that they had was that of an orange that travels several thousand kilometers before it reaches an Australian buyer. To combat this, they suggest having personal gardens.
Having a garden of your own reduces the utility of pesticides otherwise needed to combat pests and insects of all sorts. This also means that all the food that you grow inn your own garden is free of any chemical and therefore is safe to consume. Another major concern that the world these days is combatting is shortage of water in some countries and risk in many others in the near future. For this Urban Green Farms, suggested on the use of a system known as Aquaponic. This way at least ninety percent of the water recirculates instead of being wasted down the drain, which obviously is a remarkable characteristic.
So by now if the initiatives undertaken by Urban Green Farms have motivated you to at least do your part, then do browse through their collection of Aquaponic and Hydroponic tanks and see for yourself the capacity it withholds for a sustainable living.
