First basil harvest from the Aquaponics system
| file under: 3: Urban agriculture
After working on the system design and construction for nearly two years with Dr Wilson lennard, we have finally harvested our first crop!
We harvested 120 bunches of basil, 30 bunches of broad leaf parsley, 30 lettuces and managed to make 6 jars of pesto from the basil leaves left on the packing table!
We are currently running the system at about 20% of it's capacity as we wait for our fish to grow and produce more nutrients. We currently have 60kg of fish (native Silver Perch)
