Aquaponics is a sustainable farming method that combines traditional aquaculture and hydroponics in a closed-loop system. It is more sustainable than traditional farming and uses up to 90% less water! Through aquaponics farming, the fish provides valuable nutrients for the plants, and the plants in turn keep the tank clean for the fish. This fantastically simple relationship allows you to grow healthy herbs and plants from your home, office or classroom.

The Water Garden makes an excellent teaching aid to help students learn about the needs of living things through caring for plant and animal life, and observing how each helps the other to survive.

The kit includes:

  • Fish tank
  • Water pump
  • Organic seeds (such as wheatgrass and snow peas)
  • Gravel for the tank
  • Fish food
  • Natural water treatments

Fish tank size: 305 x 300 x 200mm

The Water Garden Fish Tank also makes a great classroom teaching resource. This product can be used in classroom activities that align with the Australian Curriculum.
