CAUSES TV: Aquaponic & Hydroponic Research

On this edition of CAUSES TV, you will learn about two very important research projects and technologies that will change food is production around the world; hydroponics and aquaponics. Hydroponics is a technique of growing vegetables in water (instead of soil), and with hydroponics, vegetables and fish are raised/grown in a closed loop system.

Dean O'Hara interviews Tom Kakovitch, creator of the Flovex water aeration system (and 26 other patents). He also recently retired from UDC after 43 years. She also interviews Peter James, director of First Food Farms in Germantown, Maryland, where he develops robotics and renewal energy systems to make urban farming economically viable.
