Karoo Aquaponics

Karoo Aquaponics

Personal message

 My name is Hermias Nortier (29) and I am a Reverend from Laingsburg, Western Cape.

I want to start an Aquaponics farm in the Great Karoo. I have a passion to help and empower the vulnerable in society.

 

The Laingsburg area has not received sufficient rainfall since January 2014. The majority of the community is plagued by the drought. This project aims to be the beginning of something bigger.

 

Breakdown of costs:

 

Water tanks - R15000

Water pumps- R2000

Air pumps - R4000

Fish - R5000

Pipe fittings - R2000

Extras - R2000

 

The farm will:

• Empower farmers in the drought to farm successfully in a water-scarce area

• Produce organic fish and vegetables, ready for the local market and Cape Town

• Building relationships in the community through having a shared goal

• Feeding the poor and vulnerable

• Living a practical Christian belief
