Live Peace with Kijani Grows

Each Saturday we like to highlight an organization or movement that is making Good Happen! Today we are shining the spotlight on an organization focused on sustainable eating called Kijani Grows!

Kijani Grows is an organization that produces and installs “smart aquaponics” systems for schools, homes, and companies. They also offer courses teaching students how to build their own aquaponics system. The difference between regular aquaponics systems and the “smart” ones that this organization makes is that these gardens use a variety of sensors that allow you to monitor your garden when away from it.

The video below shows the founder of Kijani Grows, Eric Maundu, as he walks us through the proponents of his system.

Kijani Grows has various projects, including their One School, One Garden project, in which they plan to teach students how to build a smart aquaponics system and how to configure it to work on the internet. They also have the San Mateo EcoVillage in which they plan to use three 3×8 grow beds to feed residents of the EcoVillage.

Good Happens.

Pay it Forward!
