FAQ

We are currently communicating with Wilson Elementary School in Denton, Texas to provide healthy lunches and snacks for their students, focusing on their students with autism and other developmental disorders. Why? Because children have weaker immune systems than adults and they are more vulnerable to the effects of harsh fertilizer chemicals and pesticides used in conventional growing methods. Studies have shown that children with developmental disorders, such as autism, are even more susceptible.
Schools and therapy centers everywhere. Communities in developing nations. Disaster relief such as aid to Syrian refugees. Anyone who is more severely affected by conventional food problems and/or lacks access to high quality foods; whether the lackthereof is due to economic hardships or a shortage of local production.
Absolutely! Once we establish a foothold in Texas, we plan to expand to other locations across the U.S and the world. In fact, we are already laying the groundwork for expansion in Africa to equip and educate local villagers so that they are empowered to help themselves. Stay tuned…
Utilizing vertical gardens and a large shipping container to maximize growing space, this facility should produce over 25,000 lbs. of organic vegetables and fruit and over 3,000 lbs. of tilapia per year.
Due to the automated nature of our system, the overall cost and labor is significantly reduced compared to traditional farming methods. We have overestimated the total cost of maintenance to be a little over $3,000 per year in electricity costs (7kW/h @ $.15kW/h, 8 hours per day) and a weekly time investment of 1 hour per diem. Less during infant cycle, more during harvests.
An acre of land = 43,560 sq. ft. Our 40x32 facilities = 1,280 sq. ft. Divide = 34 facilities Multiply x 28,000 lbs. of fish and plants = 952,000 lbs of food With improvements here and there, we’re talking ONE MILLION POUNDS PER ACRE!!!
Vegetables
Green beans, lettuce, kale, broccoli, beets, green onions, swiss chard, green cauliflower, bok choy, and more..

Fruits
Tomatoes, squash, okra, eggplant, cucumbers, peppers, avocados, melons, citrus fruits, and more..

Sensory
Mimosa Pudica, fountain grass, lavender, chameleon, plant, geranium, lamb’s ears, sea holly, and more...

Herbs/Other
Microgreens, cilantro, oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil, sage, lavender, dandelion, thistle, and more..
It might not sound like a lot, but given the amount of space, just 1,280 square feet, this system will outproduce virtually any other system out there. Think about it like this: According to the latest Gallup.com poll, the average american spends about $151 per week on food(1), which totals to $7,852 per year. For six people, this works out to $47,112. Our system feeds six people with healthy, organic food for just over $25,000.
The balance of nutrition depends upon selected plants and fish, but with our ideal facility that concentrates heavily upon Tilapia, microgreens, and fruiting plants, we are able to meet not only the caloric needs of the average adult, but also the vitamin, mineral, and carbohydrate requirements. This system does, however, require supplementation of fat. Alternative species of fish, such as catfish, and several species of plants, such as coconut, avocado and cashews are fattier and can help to alleviate this problem.
With backgrounds in data science, behavioral therapy, and computer programming, we understand the standards for producing real, scientific data, and how to interpret that data in a meaningful way. Our hope is to test different strategies, materials and structures that will push the limits of production capabilities, therapeutic progress, and the precision of self-regulating mechanisms. Each experiment will be conducted using the utmost ethical & evidence-based methodology, while all data will be carefully documented for later analysis. We have every reason to believe that our data will show significant progress across the board.
The system has many automated components:

1.Water cycles from the fish tank to the plant beds and back again several times a day depending on the climate, type of media, type/maturity of plants. Water level monitors and fail-safe mechanisms are in place to ensure that evaporation and plant water consumption rates never threaten the safety of the fish.

2. pH sensors monitor the water to regulate the acidity, when the water gets too acidic there are mechanisms in place to deliver organic oyster shells and potash to the water, which will not only raise the pH, but also add Calcium and Potassium (important nutrients for healthy roots, metabolic activity and plant cell development).

3. Temperature sensors and heating/cooling elements regulate the temperature of the water and ambient air.

4. Fish food is automatically released into the fish tanks multiple times a day and in quantities depending on the current fish size. The system will gradually add more food over time as the fish grow in size.
First, shipping containers are like giant legos - they can be stacked, aligned, and trasported in a number of ways. Greenhouse choices are seemingly boundless and often require a few hours and a couple tools to construct. They can be broken down and transported inside the shipping container, along with all the other supplies. Beyond that, our system will use the most commonly available standards for interconnection of water, air, electric lines and other hardware needs. The plant grow beds will be pre-assembled boxes made from common materials with removable screws, and will have quick-connect hardware for plumbing, electricity, and air transport included, much like a receptacle is imbedded in the wall at your home.
We have developed a commercial scale implementation of this system where our described facility is multiplied and grouped together to form a complex. Each unit still operates independently of unit next to it, helps to insulate neighboring units, and also still allows for portability. As far as scaling down, shipping containers and greenhouses come in a variety of smaller sizes to fit in residential back yards, on rooftops, and in parking lots. For even smaller applications, our prototype IBC tote system can fit in small basements, and aquarium conversion kits can fit on shelves and countertops. Looking ahead, we believe we can further benefit from economies of scale in larger implementations with unique engineering and design considerations.
We’ve designed an entire curriculum around the concept of aquaponics, plant and fish anatomy/caregiving, various beneficial insects, compost, renewable energy sources and zero-energy designing, and much, much more. For our Autistic and other special needs individuals, we have designed a sensory garden seed package and integrated therapeutic and educational curriculum that includes elements of executive functioning, sensory integration, life skills, speech therapy, physical & occupational therapy, play therapy as well as social skills.
