Today is #WorldWaterDay! We’re celebrating by expanding #INMEDAquaponics in drought regions around the world. Aquaponics consumes up to 90% less water than traditional farming and protects the watershed by using no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. It’s environmentally friendly and scalable to urban and rural environments. We’re also using aquaponics to empower women, individuals with disabilities, subsistence farmers and children in distressed communities.

Resilience Starts At Home: How can Barbadians take the fight to climate change? - Caribbean Development Trends

INMED Partnerships for Children and INMED Caribbean are proud to partner with IADB on our Increasing Access to Climate-Smart Agriculture in Jamaica. We're using #aquaponics to cultivate agri-entrepreneurs.

We are often reminded that climate change is not a phenomenon to be taken lightly. However, too often we only come to grips with this important issue when an event has severely wounded an island-neighbor for the fear that our island may be the next to suffer similar consequences. And there is no

INMED Parcerias para Crianças

Here's an interesting little fun fact from our team at INMED Parcerias para Crianças: Did you know that coconut contains vitamins and minerals that strengthen the immune system? It's a rich source of antioxidants and fiber, helps intestinal function, strengthens the teeth, and is known as an excellent "serum" for hydration. So go nuts for coconut!

Além de saboroso e refrescante, o coco possui quantidade de vitaminas e minerais que fortalecem o sistema imunológico e traz muitos benefícios importantes para nossa saúde.
Rico em gorduras saturadas, fonte de fibras, ajuda no funcionamento intestinal, tem ação antibacteriana, fortalece os dentes, é conhecido como um "soro" excelente para hidratação, e por ai vai… Que bom que temos essa fruta em abundancia no Brasil e este alimento está presente em diversas receitas.
Conhece alguma muito boa? Compartilha com a gente! #coco #paracrianças #escolherbem #saúde

Why are our #PellaFoodGarden farmers so excited? They just learned that Biotherm, through its subsidiary company Limarco 77 (RF) Proprietary Limited, has donated funding for a small-scale agro-processing room for their #INMEDAquaponics and adaptive agriculture enterprise. The cold storage unit will help the female entrepreneurs further expand their offerings, such as their popular bottled pickled fish. Thank you, BioTherm!
