US (CO): The Aquaponic Source moves to Boulder
“We are all about helping empower people to grow their own food”, says Tawnya Sawyer, Co-owner of The Aquaponic Source and Colorado Aquaponics. “We stay true to our passion of growing fish and plants together naturally, and helping others do the same thru education, products and consulting services.”
The increase in production and distribution space will allow for greater capacity in assembly and shipping modular aquaponic systems that are commonly installed in homes, offices and schools. The Aquaponic Source is also launching a new line of community-scale aquaponic farm systems which are designed to integrate into several different common greenhouse models. Most notably, The Aquaponic Source has partnered with another Boulder-based company Ceres Greenhouse to deliver integrated designs that pair space-efficient, hybrid aquaponic systems with high-performance super-energy efficient year-round greenhouses.
In preparation for the move, The Aquaponic Source is hosting a major garage sale on October 22, 2016 from 9am – 3pm in Longmont at 1860 Lefthand Circle, Suite E. This event will offer deep discounts on many of their display and lab systems, used equipment, discontinued items, and lots of aquaponics parts and components that have been collected over the years. Tanks, growbeds, lighting, nutrients, pest management products, pumps, aeration, media, and office equipment is available for sale.
“We would rather sell it than move it,” Tawnya quips as the team works through the logistics of getting everything moved without interruptions in orders. “This is the perfect time to move, creating a really efficient new work space for team members, and get settled in before the holiday traffic really picks up in late November.”
The move to Boulder is only temporary, as Tawnya and JD Sawyer are purchasing land in Vista Business Park, in Lafayette, Co. The bigger vision plan for 2017 is to construct a brand new facility which will include production, distribution, office, classroom space and a farm scale aquaponic greenhouse to produce food for the local community. Having operated three different aquaponic greenhouses in the Denver area as Colorado Aquaponics, the couple is excited to demonstrate a working model that can be replicated in retirement centers, universities, business parks, housing developments and anywhere that people can gain value from producing their food locally.
