Aquaponics is the combination of hydroponics and aquaculture, an ancient form of sustainable agriculture that has been revitalized using modern technology. Fish and vegetables are raised together in a closed-loop system that is its own self contained ecosystem. Fish raised in tanks naturally produce waste in the water which is pumped through plant beds where it is absorbed as fertilizer by the plants and filtered to return safely to the fish.
HATponics creates sustainable agriculture solutions for education and humanitarian aid using Hydroponics, Aquaponics and Terraponics farming methods. HATponics is the leader in aquaponics farming and sustainable agriculture education in the Southeast and at the forefront of sustainable agriculture development in Chattanooga, Tennessee and North Georgia.
HATponics could not accomplish what we do without the help and collaboration from other wonderful organizations who are equally as dedicated to providing food and agriculture education to all. We work with a variety of organizations of all backgrounds and sizes and are always seeking opportunities to connect with others with similar missions. If your organization shares our vision and would like to work with HATponics please contact us.
HATponics believes in a sustainable solution to world hunger. In Chattanooga and Northwestern Georgia we have had a huge impact on the community, providing farming resources to students, educators and those in need. However, our goal is to reach farther, and encourage our students here to contribute to the goal of feeding 20 million people by the year 2020 by sending farms to populations in need.
