ingredients for the compost pile.  
 
     
 
          
                                              
 
The nursey is where many of the plants begin their lives. We grow fragrant jasmine rice and many kinds of fruits and vegetables. The shade net on the nursery provides protection from the hot tropical sun. The compost pit helps to ensure that the plants will be growing in good soil that has adequate nutrients for them.

We are currently constructing  tanks  to grow duckweed in. The duckweed will be used to feed the fish  and, of course, the ducks.
We are also constructing a closed Aquaponics system that grows vegetables hydroponically utilizing fish waste. The fish feed the plants and the plants clean the fish tankwater. A complete ecosystem!

The new aquaponics system, almost finished!
