The transition from IAVS to IAS

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

Greetings!  I hope you are staying healthy. 

Long story short, so much has changed in what have been doing.  IAVS has been substantially modified and improved.  We call it IAS now, Integrated Aquaponics System! IAS - the art and science of growing more food organically, with much less water and energy.

You can grow fish, microgreens, greens, herbs, vegetables, fruits, fowls and small livestock using IAS methods.

Here is a very brief video for you to have a look.  Based on your response, I will elaborate.

Kind regards, vkn

It does not really matter how you want to grow more food.  Think beyond sand beds.  Our children and grand children do not want greenhouse-gas emissions, poverty, and biodiversity loss. Let us do our bit whatever we can. Do something awesome!
IAS = Aquaponics + Hydroponics + Organic Agriculture

Q: How to feed 1000 people year round?

Here is a typical Integrated Aquaponics System (IAS) project suitable for 200 families or to feed approx 1000 people year round.

We have done similar projects. This vision would need a total build area of one to two acres. This is what we are currently working on.

There was a typo. IAS = Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) + Hydroponics + Organic Agriculture

Hi again VKN

I'w been reading thru your Facebook page trying to figure out what's happening on your front regarding IAVS developments.

Aside from the name change from IAVS to IAS what's new ?

IAS = Future of Food!
Integrated Aquaponics Systems is the most productive, resilient and sustainable food production system yet devised!

Instead of the acronym "IAS", what else we could call it?

Aqua-Hort
Integrated Horticulture
Integrated Aquaculture
Unified Nutrition Provisioning

Get educated on the art of growing food. The global online crash course on Integrated Aquaponics Systems (IAS) is scheduled on Sundays, 10-11 AM. The COVID discount offer of over 60% ends after this Sunday, April, 26, 2020. Please pass it on to your tribe. Appreciate it.

Bildet kan inneholde: tekst som sier 'Question: What is IAS? "IAS" is an acronym we at NARDC coined for Integrated Aquaponics Systems Instead of "IAS", what else?'
Quote end.
 
I can see you are running online training classes on IAS 👍 
And understand from your Flatland pic.abovee2289d14-3767-4767-9f2e-f0f5f69b95c4_7%2  that you have adopted Wageningen University research on the Food System Vision 2050 'Re-rooting the Dutch food system: from more to better'
 
cheers
