Azolla Foundation

Recommended Posts

Most people are aware of duckweed, but far fewer people know much about azolla.  It grows on water (like duckweed) and there's a foundation that exists to promote this interesting plant and its uses.  It's a worth a look if you are interested in integrated food production.

 That link is a very good condensed brief on Azolla.    I've found that it requires very little water depth to grow azolla and it will literally grow in water depths as little as a few millimeters deep as long as it does not get too hot.

 

 

The carbon sequestration is really interesting. I've often wondered why we cannot recreate the Azolla Event to help deal with climate change.
