Aquaponics! The first crop is ready for harvest


Karoo Square is a shopping destination with a difference. All the tenants are artisans/crafts folk. The setting is ‘farm in the city’  – where you can stroll at leisure amongst the plants, farm animals and various shops or stay a while for a hearty meal and craft beer or cake and freshly ground coffee.

Karoo Square has a strong focus on sustainability. With this in mind, a state of the art Aquaponics system has been under development for a few months now and this week sees the harvesting of the first crops of baby leaf lettuce. These will be available from Terra Madre from this coming Thursday. Soon to come are micro herbs and salads and a whole lot more. Aquaponics is an exciting, organic, symbiotic system which results in a sustainable protein source (Tilapia) and fresh, nutritional produce.
