Aquaponics Greenhouse

Dahlia Campus operates an aquaponics greenhouse where we grow produce and fresh fish year-round.

Aquaponics is a sustainable farming solution that recirculates water from fish tanks through vegetable grow beds.

Nutrients from the fish waste feed the plants and the plants filter the water to keep the fish healthy.
