Aquaponics is a form of aquaculture where waste produced by farmed fish supplies the nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn then clean the water, creating a self-sufficient cycle of exchange and growth.
At Urban Farm-It we believe that an aquaponic consultant’s work is very similar to an aquaponics system, prioritising sustainability and productivity in a project. Our consultancy co-operative approach brings with it an “aquaponic consultancy ecosystem” where you will have access to a team of specialists able to tackle all the challenges you may face.
For personal or commercial projects, there comes a time when you may need professional advice to solve problems and find solutions. Urban Farm-It offers an A-Z consultancy, bespoke design and project management service.
Whether it is cultivating mushrooms on a small scale, a large scale aquaponic installation or hydroponics in an educational environment, our consultancy co-operative promises to provide the best result for your project.
Our cooperative approach to aquaponics consultancy enables us to be flexible with selecting the consultants that will work on your project. When working together, we will find the best-suited experts for your needs and the right approach to bring your vision to life. Our aquaponics consultants are experts in their field – from aquaponics design, build or the resurrection of old set-ups – we will find the perfect fit for your project. Our network of aquaponics consultants is diverse, so rest assured we will have the right people for your requirements.
The initial setup of your system is not our end goal. Our end goal is to send you into the world of aquaponics fully informed and geared for success.
Our experience and expertise afford you a full-scale insight and guidance into setting up a successful aquaponics business.
From the beginning of the consultancy process, we will inform and guide you through the decision making processes including financial costs and managing associated risks, through to the steps behind developing a successful business model and providing an in-depth analysis of present and future business feasibility.
Aquaponics setups are organic and self-sufficient systems. They increase the type of stock and crops you offer, whilst conserving water and working in areas with awkward spaces. A key point is that an aquaponic set-up closely follows natural processes and nitrogen cycling.
