Aquasustain

Sustainable Food Production for Our Challenging Times

Polluted oceans. Collapsing fisheries. Failing aquifers. Famine. These are just a few of the problems we face in the modern age as our technology and population expands.

Aquasustain offers a simple, economical solution to these problems, and more. Using design principles firmly rooted in the natural world, our unique aquaponic systems provide fresh produce and sustainable protein year round, in any climate.

Utilizing less than 1/10th of the fresh water required by traditional farming, and relying entirely on energy generated by the sun, Aquasustain systems are a revolutionary solution to some of our planet's biggest problems.

Simple Solutions

Aquasustain is a concept which grew out of nearly three decades of experience and experimentation with sustainable agriculture, green building design, and aquaponics technology.

Put simply, Aquasustain offers a fresh spin on sustainable food production, which combines the best parts of aquaculture (raising fish) with the most advanced techniques of hydroponics (growing plants without soil).

By combining the best of both worlds, the Aquasustain system harnesses the strengths and eliminates the weaknesses of each, providing a groundbreaking method for truly sustainable food production. Furthermore, it achieves this without the use of costly fossil fuels, grid-tied electricity, chemical inputs, or large commitments of labor.

Aquasustain: A Project For a Greener Future

The quest to solve big problems is the foundation of our motivation and passion. As global and national instability in its various forms (economic, political, environmental, nutritional, etc.) continues to manifest itself, we have embraced the challenge of developing a practical solution.

Our Aquasustain systems offer a powerful tool for resolving many of the most pressing problems facing us all. Whether it be concerns over climate change, resource depletion and scarcity, or widespread hunger and poverty, Aquasustain's unique technology offers an effective and accessible solution.

We've proven the concept, and the results have exceeded our expectations. Now it's time to expand our operations to first feed our immediate community, and then grow to help feed the world.

Your donation to our project will directly benefit our fragile environment, the preservation of our precious natural resources, and perhaps most importantly, our fellow human inhabitants of the planet. Your support will make the difference in our journey toward true sustainability.

With your help, Aquasustain will be able to embark on the next phase of this important project to feed communities, protect the Earth's dwindling resources, and secure a greener future for our children to inherit.

Please donate now to help Aquasustain grow.

Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple. — Bill Mollison

About Us

Founded in 2014, Aquasustain grew out of a deep love and concern for our planet's fragile environment.

We saw the reports from international agencies detailing the near-total collapse of our world's fisheries. We watched with alarm as our oceans and fresh water were polluted with radiation, mercury, plastics, and toxic industrial chemicals. We saw, first hand, the plight of disadvantaged families struggling to eat well in our nation's "food deserts".

We knew we had to come up with a solution.

Aquasustain is the result of over a decade of research and collaboration, as we learned how to harness natural ecological feedback loops to build the world's most sustainable food growing system. Our work has resulted in an innovative solution which produces fresh, local food year round, while requiring very little water and zero fossil fuel inputs.

Every donation makes a difference.

A gift to Aquasustain is an investment in our community, and the health of our planet.

Our small-scale system has proven to be more productive than we imagined it could be. With your support, we can expand our operations to the community scale. A large scale system will enable us to feed families in need, launch new research projects, and promote a healthier, more sustainable Colorado.

Donate now to help us build Southern Colorado's first community-scale, sustainable, food production system.
