Established since July 2010, Indies Greens is a locally owned and operated organic farm. Larry, Marjorie and Damon Francis have harnessed the power of a natural ecosystem that combines traditional aquaculture with hydroponics in the ultimate symbiotic system.
The technology-based farming uses a natural interaction between fish and plants. The fish are fed, and their excreta acts as fertilizer for the crops. Fish food is the only additive.
The eco-friendly family-run farm currently grows a variety of organic vegetables, including lettuce, chives, mint, cilantro, pak choi, basil, kale, thyme, spinach, chadon beni and herbs alongside Tilapia fish in the nutrient-laden water from the fish tanks. The fish and plants are nutritionally balanced, flavourful, and safe to eat.
