FarmPod & Solar Logic make the news

Click here to read the Santa Fe New Mexican’s article about Mike Straight’s Santa Fe startup. His FarmPod prototype, is a common-sense solution to food deserts. He came up with the  idea of putting a fully automated aquaponics system inside a shipping container. The garden is on the top and the fish are below. Water containing the fish’s waste is pumped up to the greenhouse on the second floor, where it trickles down through the vertical towers, feeding the roots of young plants. The clean water circulates back to the fish. We wish Mike great success with his new venture!
