Food consumption constitutes a whopping 24% of Canberra’s greenhouse pollution. With predicted changes to the way our economy will operate in a post-peak oil world, not to mention our territory’s ambitious emission reduction targets, delivering a sustainable food supply to Canberra is going to be a challenge during the next decade.
Luckily, there are ways to maximise the food-producing potential of any area. Aquaponics is an extremely efficient method of food production, and Alfred Deakin High School is holding an open day between 10 am and 1 pm this Saturday, July 2nd to tour its aquaponics facility.
