AquaFarm by Back To The Roots- FATHOM Feature
Back to the Roots is a San Francisco Bay Area-based company founded in 2009 by Alejandro Velez and Nikhil Arora. The duo focused in on creating an aquaponics system, a process that combines aquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment. AquaFarm, an all-in-one unit that allows users to grow fresh produce at home — beans, basil, thyme, baby greens, oregano, mint, parsley, and spinach to name a few. The closed-loop eco-system uses fish waste to naturally fertilize the plants above.
