HOW WE GROW

Welcome to Jwale’s How We Grow page! At Jwale, we believe that growing food should be sustainable, accessible, and rooted in traditional ecological knowledge. That’s why we use aquaponics, a method of farming that combines aquaculture and hydroponics to create a closed-loop ecosystem.

Our aquaponics system is designed to mimic the natural symbiotic relationship between fish and plants. Fish produce waste, which contains nutrients that plants need to grow. The plants, in turn, filter the water, removing the waste and providing clean water back to the fish. It’s a beautiful cycle that creates healthy, organic produce and fish.

We use low-tech, easily adaptable, and accessible growing techniques that are rooted in traditional ecological knowledge. This means we don’t rely on expensive, high-tech equipment or chemicals to grow our food. Instead, we use natural methods that have been passed down for generations.

To manage pests and diseases, we utilize Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques. IPM is an environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of techniques, such as biological control, crop rotation, and habitat manipulation, to keep pests and diseases under control. This approach minimizes the use of pesticides and herbicides, which can harm the environment and human health.

At Jwale, we’re committed to growing healthy, sustainable food that’s good for the planet and good for you. We believe that aquaponics is the future of farming, and we’re proud to be part of a growing movement that’s revolutionizing the way we grow food. Thank you for choosing Jwale, and we look forward to providing you with fresh, organic produce and fish!
