Aquaponics ground-breaking in Johannesburg

There was rumbling in Johannesburg last week as earth-moving equipment broke ground for INMED’s latest aquaponics system in partnership with the Mondelēz International Foundation (MIF). These progress photos show the security fencing installation and digging of the grow bed foundations and fish tank holes. INMED hired local laborers to assist.

The site is next to the Elias Motswaledi clinic, which serves surrounding disadvantaged communities. Harvests from the aquaponics system will be donated to schools participating in INMED’s Health in Action program with MIF. The system is expected to be operational by October.
