Bioponica assists clients to identify top resource needs when planning for a sustainable farming operation.

Using innovative biological and energetic methods of resource processing, growers can recycle everthing and gain security for all operational needs of water, nutrients, energy and do so with less labor.

Water Use

Water is a free natural resource in most temperate regions of the world.

To flush a toilet or discard grey water without consideration of reuse potential is a costly oversight. At a minimum rainwater should be harvested from available sources and stored to ensure that year to year supply matches farm and dwelling needs.

Supply

  • Independence from water grid for operational water security
  • Harvest rainwater if no onsite source. 
  • Size storage based on needs, collection area and area precipitation. 

Conserve 

  • Plants optimal needs met through continuous flood and drain cycles.
  • Recirculating beds diminish requirements by 90%

Quality

  • Rain and natural water table sources are free of chlorine, florine and other toxins. 
  • Incorporate water vortex for improving electromagnetic delivery of nutrients to plants and fish
  • Continuous bio-filter and purification with aid of microbes and grow beds.

Waste Recycling

There are enough nutrient rich sources of fertilizer treated as "waste" that end up at the curbside or down the drain to raise plants, fish and animals without ever outsourcing nutrients.

If treated as a "resource" it is relatively easy to achieve sustainability with a side benefit of creating a negative carbon impact.

Supply

  • Ensure that nothing essential leaves the property
  • Turn food and lawn wastes into a liquid feed and fertilizer
  • Fertilizers and animal feeds are all produced on site from biomass

Reuse

  • Integrate low tech digesters to recycle organic nutrients into fertilizer
  • Engineer ecosystems to create a perpetual food web through nutrient cycling
  • Diminish the "waste" effect of these natural resources and preserve the environment

Create biproducts

  • Create microbially enriched earth from worm castings
  • Produce liquid fertilizer
  • Grow beneficial microbes
  • Worms as a profitable adjunct to waste management.
  • Raise fish and and farm animal feed from duckweed
  • Fertilize grow beds and build complex food web

Energy Efficiencies

Recognizing energy sources and designs to minimize dependency on central grid.

Energy can be harnessed and conserved to a much greater degree than is commonly practiced with little effort.

Water for energy

  • Ease delivery of water through gravity flow dynamics
  • Use water to reduce electric through evaporative cooling fans
  • Geothermal subfloor heat and cooling in northern climates
  • Water for thermal mass
  • Treadle foot pump with gravity storage as electric source backup

Gravity

  • Move water over long distance with gravity and modest pump electricity
  • Vortex energy for clarification of water through implosion, cavitation, aeration and separation.
  • Wood or biomass farming and pellet production for furnace heat

Solar energy

  • Greenhouse capture heat of sunlight for passive heat
  • PV panels without battery for daytime energy use
  • Shading curtains for cooling effect
  • Natural light vs. indoor electric lights

Labor Reducing

Gardening and farming with biopponics eliminates much of the labor of conventional and organic operations.

  • Waist high gardening ideal for old, young, dis-abled.
  • No soil management or handling effort with plants, including microgreens and wheatgrass
  • Utilize gravity dynamics to limit effort in watering Food Plant and ground landscapes
  • Fertili-Tea™ and or Bioponica process of nutrient leaching to avoild labor of composting and get a superior liquid fertilizer as foliar or recirculating nutrient for building fertile "pond" and ecologically balanced food web.
  • Bioponica Food Plant module design reduces effort of bending, digging, weeding, tilling, composting.
