Over the weekend, we happened upon Sweet Water Organics in Milwaukee by accident. We went inside to check out their general store and ended up tagging along to a tour of the entire place. IT WAS NEAT! They are part of the “urban agriculture” movement, specializing in aquaponics. They farm fish and leafy green vegetables in a system that promotes “symbiotic mutualism”—where one basically sustains the other. You could set this up at home too. In addition to their farming, they have created a community around this, where people could come and hang out, listen to live music, share food at a monthly potluck, or participate in any number of their community programs. Makes me think about how these concepts could apply in lots of other places, say...the workplace?!
