Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it! This week, we’re bringing you an archive piece.

Have you ever wondered what the heck aquaponics is? Is it the same as hydroponics and isn’t that just some kind of high tech way to grow pot? As it turns out, while there is definitely a relation to hydroponics, but it’s nothing to do with Mary Jane, although aquaponic systems do seem like a smoking good idea.

A unique form of agriculture with aquatic growing systems that combine fish and plants into one symbiotic environment, aquaculture technology is sustainable, incredibly water efficient, and super cool. Stay tuned to learn all about it with us, as Charly Blais and Andrea Gallivan chat with Edmonton-based designer and entrepreneur Jonathan Luckhurst of Sea to Sky Aquaponics whos main focus has been bringing aquaponics to students across Canada.
