Aquaponics: Redefining Organic


Drew Hopkins

What is Viridis /vi.ri.dis/?

THE LITERAL TRANSLATION IN LATIN IS, “TO SPROUT, GREEN, YOUTHFUL AND LIVELY.”  WHAT BETTER NAME FOR A COMPANY THAT DOES ALL OF THOSE THINGS ON 5% OF THE WATER OF CONVENTIONAL CROP PRODUCTION, ZERO RUNOFF, ORGANIC INPUTS, AND WITH NO CHEMICAL PESTICIDES.

Our Model

WE ARE GROWING LOCALLY SUSTAINABLE FOOD COMBINING THE BEST PRACTICES OF HYDROPONICS AND AQUACULTURE. WHEN THE TWO BLEND TOGETHER, A SYMBIOTIC BALANCE FORMS IN WHICH NATURE THRIVES AND PRODUCES THE PUREST FOOD GROWN TODAY.
