The first welcome was heartwarming and the girl who did the tour was really passionate about Urban Farmers and her job there. Before entering backstage we dressed up in protective gear. Then we started our tour in a room full of fish tanks. We could see the fish swim and our guide informed us with a detailed description of the procedures. Very interesting!

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining so the temperature in the greenhouse was very pleasant. © My Little Travel Stories Our guided tour at the greenhouse. © My Little Travel Stories Aquaponics They control every production step to ensure safety and quality of the product. Their goal is to maximise resource efficiency by using ‘aquaponics’. It’s an ancient technology, reinvented using sophisticated technology. It combines vegetable and fish production: nutrients rich waste water from fish production are recycled as fertilizer for vegetables, and plants can purify the water that will be reused for fish production.
