Marcus Sewell is a 33-year-old emerging aquaponics farmer in Spanish Town, St. Catherine. He became interested in aquaponics two years ago when he was surfing YouTube and came across a how-to video on building a home system. It sparked his interest, so he decided to design a system that would feed his family and provide high-quality produce to sell to his community.
Marcus grew up on a farm and has a life-long affinity for it, but his passion is technology. “As I learned more about aquaponics, I realized it would give me the opportunity to introduce technology while using innovation to help produce healthy food,” he says. Thanks to INMED’s Increasing Access to Climate-Smart Agriculture (IACA) program in Jamaica, Marcus is doing just that!
