Food & Agriculture

We are creating an ecosystem that provides abundant nutritious food,
restores the surrounding ecology and people’s health, and frees up our time.

Our demonstration project:
Integrated Aquaponics System in Kerala, India

The Venus Project Integrated Aquaponics System (#TVPIAS) project will provide about 30 families with fresh fish and vegetables year-round. It will also provide a variety of fruits. It is located in the state of Kerala in India, on about 550m2 (5920 ft2) for the fish and vegetables plus another 192m2 (2066 ft2) for the surrounding fruiting tree orchard.

Some benefits of this system:

  • Much higher and faster growth and yield
  • Uses 98% less water
  • Uses very little land
  • No chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or antibiotics
  • No pollution of water, land or atmosphere
  • Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscription model – the local families get lower food price and we get predictability
  • Grow a wide variety of vegetables, fish and fruits all at once
  • Can be any size: to feed one person, a family, a neighborhood, or large commercial to feed towns and cities
  • No tilling or weeding. Automated irrigation. Far less amount of labor required overall.
  • Can readily integrate any other good agricultural practice into the system
