Renthia Kaimbi - AquaGreens Namibia

 

AquaGreens Namibia will be dedicated to the production of organic fruit and vegetables and the cultivation of edible and ornamental freshwater fish populations as well as decorative and edible flowers, at the same time under controlled conditions, all year round. They envision helping the Namibian government ensure nutritious food security nationally, intend to promote affordable healthy living, as well as create employment by setting up complimenting chains of value addition. Aquaponics is a game changer, because you are ensured a great harvest in the smallest of spaces and they are eager to safely bring food production closer to the end user, reducing the "food miles" on fresh produce that they indirectly pay for on imported products.
