We want to install aquaponic farms on roof-tops. One of the specific places of Medellin where one will be installed is the roof-top of the Pablo Tobon Uribe Theater, which supports us since the beginning of the project. The theater has a café where customers can order dishes. With the system of aquaponic farm, food will be grown directly above customers. The theater is located in a suitable area for aquaponic farm because it is in the center of the city, where there is an urban heat island and high air pollution, with a lot of CO2 to feed the plants.
Also, as the aquaponic farm project focuses a lot on green energy, we get some valuable help from Andrea Tosi. She has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Science in Sustainable Design from the University of Texas, in Austin. Andrea is passionate about solar energy and about making the technology more readily available in the developing world. She works closely with the team to ensure adequate power generation for lighting and heating needed for the system.
