If You Build It, They Will Come!!!
600 AquaBoo Towers – 12,000 Grow Holes
This project came to be, because of the Bio-Dome project that we built in Orem, Utah. The Birth Place of the BooGardens Vertical Gardening Towers.
This is our flagship project, this Commercial AquaPonics Greenhouse facility is located in the beautiful Swiss inspired town of Midway, Utah.
This project is situated on 60 acres of farm land, that has a natural creek running right through the middle of it. a truly beautiful setting for the NaturePonics Institute to set up shop.
This is a approximately 20,000 square foot building that will house 12 1,250 gallon fish tanks, that will hold approximately 800 Rainbow Trout, these beautiful tasty fish are native to the Provo river which runs just below the property. These fish will be held in three separate tanks , one for minnows, one for guppies and the other for full grown fish. Once they reach 1lb, they will be sold to local high end restaurants for their menu. The amazing produce that is created from the fertilizer fish waste, AKA poop, will be sold to local restaurants as well. We will be growing edible insects and worms for the fish and creating incredible compost tea and soil for traditional organic gardening, as well as the waste can be used as a methane gas for back up generators. We seek to close the loop and have a fully self sustained eco-system that feeds itself in a full circle. Just as nature intended it.
This system will have approximately 80 4×8′ lava rock media grow beds for root veggies and tomatoes, and each grow bed will have 8 5.5′ BooGarden Towers both SpiralBoo and FullBoo configurations, with a combined number of grow holes of over 11,000.
Our major goal with the Midway facility is to also, create the NaturePonics Institute where people can come from all over the world and stay for a week in Midway or Park City which is 20 minutes away, and get hands on certified in AquaPonics, AKA BooPonics.
