Aqua Annie is your hyperlocal source for herbs in Portland.Our herbs are produced in the most sustainable fashion possible by leveraging emerging technologies in aquaponics. Our local production process allows for year round production right across town rather an across the nation. In fact, our food is being grown in locations where growing food used to not be possible, such as warehouses or brownfields.
All of this is possible through our emergent aquaponic technology. Aquaponics combines traditional aquaculture with hydroponic growing methods. Basically, it is a symbiotic environment in which fish byproducts (fertilizer) is used as the nutrients in a water-based growing system. Aqua Annie’s system is a nearly a closed-loop, in that the fish fertilizer is supplies the nutrients to the great products we grow.
