Flo Gardens

Flo Gardens has created a self-cleaning and self-sustainable domestic aquaponics system that grows seafood and plants together – all while using 90% less water than soil gardens. Founders Adam Grabowski and Zerina Millard have designed the backyard ecosystem to make food sustainability more accessible for the average domestic household and put the power back in the hands of those who want to have greater autonomy over their food source. Flo Gardens is currently in the prototype stage. Visit Flo Gardens to learn more.
