Welcome to Eastgate Shopping Centre’s rooftop Aquaponics Farm District, where all your organic food needs can be shopped with ease.
Launched in partnership with Ichthys Aquaponics – one of the first and most influential aquaponics companies in the world – Eastgate Shopping Centre’s Aquaponics Farm District is the first of its kind for shopping centres across Africa. Located on our rooftop outside Entrance 10, it can be easily accessed from the rooftop entrance off Nicol Road.
The concept of aquaponics marries aquaculture and organic farming with hydroponics, whereby plants and fish are grown together in one integrated system. The fish produce clean and natural fertiliser that provides a natural food source for the growing plants, while the plants in turn provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in. The Aquaponics Farm District utilises new technologies to provide sustainable solutions to food production and food security for its clients.
So, if it’s 100% natural and fresh produce at the source that you’re after, head over to our rooftop and shop. Welcome to cleaner farming, cleaner eating and cleaner living with Eastgate Shopping Centre’s first Aquaponics Farm, located on the rooftop at Entrance 10.
Times: The Aquaponics Farm District is open daily during trading hours.
