From: Marc Cardoso at EgoGenics [firstname.lastname@example.org]
I have been following with some interest the rather exciting exchange of
opinions and ideas on microfarming, My organisation, ECOGENICS, has taken
the concept of the micro-farm to a very dynamic level. The basic premise is
to create a decentralised system of closed loop ecosystems that are totally
self sustaining, require minimal human intervention and create an
environment that precludes the negative effects of pollution, climatic
changes and other detrimental factors that have become so pervasive in
todays agricultural scenarios. The Ecogenics closed loop ecosystems
maximise the per square ft profitability by growing high ticket products
such as blue green algae in a symbiotic relationship with Tilapia fish as a
result of that self sustaining combination it is then possible to grow high
value crops hydroponically or as it is now referred to, aquaponically.
these crops are ethnobotanicals and culinary herbs as well as selected
vegetables. because of the nature of the biosphere within which all these
activities are taking place, all the products are organically certifiable.
in fact, we are the only organically certified tilapia production system in
We also have made it possible to operate over a wide range of
climatic zones and have replicated this system successfully in areas as
diverse as northern New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, georgia, Texas, New
Mexico, Oregon ,Ghana, and CostaRica. the average profit potential of these
systems is anywhere from $35,000.00 per year to $150,000.00 per year
depending on how many of the income streams are put into play within the
biospheres. In addition to training, construction supervision and technical
support we provide our grower- owners with marketing support, guaranteeing
the sale of all their products.
We expect that within the next couple of
years there will be 150 systems operational across the U.S.A.and the world.
further details can be found in our website www.dabney.com/ecogenics/. In
closing I want to commend this forum for its value as a source of
best regards to all,
Marc Orion Cardoso Ceo. Ecogenics.
