We are grateful to Old Mutual for its support of INMED’s aquaponics project

We are grateful to Old Mutual for its support of INMED’s aquaponics project for the Pella Food Garden Cooperative in the desert region of Northern Cape, South Africa. At a recent site visit, our friends at Old Mutual were pleased with the co-op’s progress since their last visit in January. At that time, the new aquaponics system had not been installed, and there was basically nothing except a small plot of vegetables withering under the brutal sun. Since then, INMED has installed a large commercial aquaponics system and has helped the co-op members develop a drip-irrigation garden under shade cloth using adaptive agriculture techniques. In just 6 months, the entire 2.5-hectare farm has started producing a wide variety of vegetables. The co-op has begun using a basic bookkeeping system, is selling their harvests and are starting to market their brand of high-quality, all natural, chemical-free and eco-friendly farmed produce. Just another example of how INMED aquaponics is changing lives around the world.
