In other words, the purpose that drives our business activity is the promotion of this amazing water-saving farming method. Either in terms of vocational training and dissemination of scientific and environmentalist knowledge.
Since in Aquaponics we see a great deal of potential for what concerns the entrepreneurship world. As well as to raise the public awareness on the fragility, and yet power, of the balances that allow ecosystems to maintain. Especially, we really care about rising the issue of food production. Because – beside the fact that the conventional farming practices are unsustainable in the long run – nowadays farmers around all the world are struggling to tackle the effects of Climate Change. Nevertheless, we don’t understand that the farmers’ troubles will be ours, too. Since they’re already affecting and damaging our livelihoods.
Moreover, we believe that Aquaponics can be used to make a safe space where anyone can experience the Awe and Beauty crafted by Nature. Particularly survivors or wounded people who’ll benefit from the healing force of Life itself, even if it enclosed in greenhouses.
This is the reason why we decided to open up My Rivendell Aquaponics Farm to the public for the scheduled guided tours.
And not only to the aquaponics enthusiasts who attend our workshops.
Infact, to help them starting a striving Aquaponics business, we organize vocational training weekends or weeks with the aim of building up a targeted expertise. That is to say that in the scheduled workshops we focus on specific fish/crayfish species and crops to farm in Aquaponics.
Beside sharing of course, a generalized, expert know-how tips.
Such as, for instance, how to build repeatable and scalable Aquaponic systems with a low initial investment. In fact, what we aim to proof you with our own experience is that it’s not always true that you need a big deal of capital to start an Aquaponics business.
Since it’s just a matter of the niche market demand you’re going to satisfy with your products. Beside the location you mean to build in. Like, for what concerns us. In fact, we choose to implement our Aquaponics facility in the countryside of Tuscany in order to make our family’s farmland work. Furthermore, it depends on the system design that works best for your project requirements.
Yet, we’ll look more deeply into this matter either when you’ll come for a consultancy or during one of our workshops.
Just like we’ll talk of your project (if you want to get some suggestions from us). As well as the professional sectors where the application of Aquaponics may have a competitive added value.
In short, booking our tours and workshops, you’ll benefit of our experience in the field.
Especially thanks to Davide Di Crescenzo, our Scientific Director who has been working as consultant and vocational trainer for 10 years. Beside his previous experience as marine biologist and crayfish breeder.
TAKE THE TIME YOU DESERVE
Yet, as already said, we devote our farming haven not only to the Aquaponics enthusiasts who want to start a business. But to whoever will take some hours to enjoy the Beauty we’ve been crafting in our eco-friendly farm.
Because a responsible farming is also a lifestyle that enriches the world, nourishing the land in the same way of the soul. This is the reason why we chose to focus our attention on ornamental fish, crayfish, shrimps and flowers.
Infact, we aim to grow and preserve the biodiversity of this territory, through the creation of micro-ecosystems that attracts the pollinating insects and other wild animals.
Moreover, we want to promote a green tourism that enhances the natural treasures the land gives us everyday. Considered that every season holds its own breath-taking discoveries to find out. For this reason, our events are organized according to the different stages of crops and animals growth and mating.
