Picture a foam raft on top of a fish tank, where plants pop out on top while their roots dangle in the water below. That’s a type of aquaponics—a method of farming that grows plants and fish together.
28-year-old Spencer Curry started his own indoor farming company in Connecticut to help bring aquaponics—and fresh produce—to as many people as possible. They’ve just opened a new facility that’s already growing thousands of plants like kale and rainbow chard.
Today, he sits down to talk about the future of farming with an old friend—North Gate Radio’s Alex Orlando.
