Aquaponic gardens use fish, water and no soil — and may be the future of food growing.
Well, that's what Martine Schreibmand has been saying for quite a while now. Under his direction, AREAC has been raising tilapia in the basement of the Ingersoll Hall Extension for years. Soon, the greenhouse on the roof of the building will be complete, and hopefully, a full blown aquaponics operation will begin there. Right now, Martin and Rob Dickie are expanding their aquaponics operation downstairs. AREAC is ready, willing and able to lead the aquaponics and sustainable food production charge in Brooklyn and the other boroughs.
