Back to the Roots is committed to bringing people closer to their food.
We helped Back to the Roots design and build the Water Garden; the first home aquaponics system that offers an engaging and simple farming experience for families. The Water Garden consists of a self-cleaning fish tank that grows food. When owners feed the fish, the fish's waste serves as nutrients for the plants. In turn, the plants clean the water. This self-contained ecosystem gives owners a lasting opportunity to bring their own food to life.
The Water Garden won The Chicago Athenaeum GOOD DESIGN Award and thousands of Water Gardens are now in homes and classrooms around the world. Back to the Roots is a growing company with unstoppable momentum, bringing fresh food and the joy of gardening to kids and families around the nation.
