Mission Statement

"Our mission is to create awareness of Aquaponics and its use in sustainable food growth, while educating our students and community through engaging outreach programs."

Description

The Ambler Aquaponics facility is located on Temple University’s Ambler Campus in Ambler, Pennsylvania. This project was started in the fall of 2012 and is a student run organization. We look forward to expanding the project through student and community involvement.

Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, recirculating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste to plant nutrients. This is an environmentally friendly, natural food-growing method that harnesses the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the need to discard any water or filtrate or add chemical fertilizers. - Aquaponic G ardening Community, November 2010
