Aquaponics

The 20/20 Solution

 

Our Goal

Feed 20 Million People By the Year 2020

In partnership with experts in the field of aquaponics and terraponics, the Andrew J. Young Foundation is working to establish sustainable agriculture programs in a variety of locations in the United States, Africa, and around the world.

Essentially, this is a portable farming system that can be shipped and quickly erected almost anywhere.  The ambitious but attainable goal is to feed 20 million people by 2020.

Significantly, in addition to being used to grow large quantities of vegetables and fruit, as well as edible fish, the aquaponics system being advanced by the Andrew J. Young Foundation is integrated with another of our most important initiatives:  Duckweed.

   Fish thrive on it.

The introduction of duckweed to aquaponics completely eliminates the expense of any other fish food and essentially creates a self-contained ecosystem.
