About Solutions Farms… Solutions Farms grows nutritious produce using a system known as aquaponics – a nutrient-rich, soilless system that uses fish in lieu of traditional chemical fertilizers. When aquaponics is combined with a controlled-environment greenhouse, premium quality crops can be grown on a year-round basis without the use of pesticides. As a replicable, environmentally friendly model, Solutions Farms was designed to provide nutritious organic produce to the San Diego Community and to serve as an on-the-job training opportunity for formerly homeless families. The farm also provides a unique learning space and much-needed educational opportunities for the community – most notably for children in our region’s elementary and middle schools.
