    Description

    Come and help us out in our new project building a vertical acuaponic farm, learn how to rise fish and grow your own food using hydrophonic and other sustainable techniques. We are developing a greenhouse made out of container ships to make a vertical acuaponic system. This is an integral project, so all the ideas are welcome. Once the farm is running you can have all the healthy and fresh food you can eat. The farm is located on the highway to Chapala lake, wich is arround 25 min away from the farm.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn how to build and how works the "chinampas" who is an ancient aztec way to grow plants we are happy to teach aquaponics, hydroponics to anyone who wants to work with us and contribute what they like, we are 25 minutes from Chapala which is a magical town where we usually go, i can assure that all the people you will meet here will seem interesting because they all have a very positive cosmogony and they all have similar interests and studies in terms of environmentalism and sustainable development.
