reVision Aquaculture 

The reVision Urban Agriculture and Aquaculture Project serves as a multi-dimensional model for environmental management and community development. The project encompasses pollution remediation of vacant lots and urban food production through an integrated, community-driven process. The guiding objective of the project is to link the long-term health of our community with an ecological development strategy rooted in an urban neighborhood.

 

The aquaculture program at reVision House provides a replicable model for micro-enterprise development for individuals and community-based organizations. The project originated as a complementary activity to increase the self-sufficiency and confidence of homeless mothers, while providing them and their families with a nutritious protein source. In 1997, the three-story back porch of reVision House was renovated into a solar greenhouse where demonstration hydroponic systems were constructed. The aquaculture project raises Tilapia fish and a variety of food crops, including basil, in the four-season facility.
