“Together We Can Grow” like any Organisation that is doing work in the Community Development space, we know the challenges of funding projects through various methods like Crowd Funding, Donations from individuals, and other Organisations, it is hard work and very challenging.
Because ‘Together We Can Grow” operates as a Social Enterprise business, we have chosen to source our funds/money challenges by selling our Aquaponics system.
The Revenue from the sales of our Commercial Aquaponics systems will enable us to be able to build Aquaponics Farms for local Organisations that are struggling to survive financially.
So you have this opportunity not only to own a Commercial Aquaponics system, and in doing so you will so be helping another project who have Little to NO MONEY to have a means of creating self-funding for their project.
Why a TWCG Commercial Aquaponics System?
Aquaponics systems/farms, when designed correctly have many benefits that traditional farming methods cannot provide, especially as a farming project.
Commercial Aquaponics farming has not been the go-to system for soilless Commercial farming practices, that honour belongs to Hydroponics and has been the market leader in this area due to it’s easy to operate.
Aquaponics at a commercial level has be avoided due to some operational and attention it needs to operate at a maximum level.
This is where “Together We Can Grow” has created unique Commercial Aquaponics system designs that are a game changer.
Our systems have been heavy reversed engineered and we have attempted to remove some of the major hurdles / drawbacks that have made traditional Aquaponics not to be use so much in the Commercial level.
The TWCG Aquaponics should be considered for your next Commercial Farming projects;
What is the difference:
The key difference with a TWCG system is we have eliminated or simplified the Balance issue, Regular monitoring and Maintenance of the system that plagues Commercial Aquaponics systems. You can never eliminate all the challenges or basic operational requirements of a Aquaponics system, but you can make it very user friendly.
One thing that TWCG have eliminated is the reliance of Fish to feed plants (which is a myth anyway as plant always need more than fish poo) and for plant to not to be heavy involved with water quality. The advantage of this is allowing Fish harvesting at large quantities not to effect the plants at all and Vegetable harvesting (all out and all in) not to effect fish.
The setup cost is a much lower than most, if not all Commercial Aquaponics Systems on the market today, this is from the Green House to the system contained inside it due to our designs.
Our systems are portable so the can be located in areas that are get to get too. The system can be moved in a very short period of time, eliminating the overall start-up cost again, due to the move.
Sustainable and Profitable due to our design that allows Vegetable production to absorb that majoring of operational cost so fish are at close to 100% profit.
We can produce most vegetables in our system that other systems may not.
Simplistic to operate due to our unique Aquaponics design that has to remove most of the operating equipment that allows people that thought their did not have the capacity, now can do so, perfect for developing Countries to run and operate these systems.
Plants and Fish have accelerated growth due to a controlled environment and our unique growing system.
Our system is based High yield of vegetables and Fish that are organically grown.
Operates all year round, is not reliant on seasons, and can operate in regions where traditional farming cannot.
We do not use traditional fertilizer, and very low water usage, so it makes our systems eco-friendly
The reduction of needed cropland and our production per square/m can be 1/6 of the area to grow the same, which equals Minimum Land for production.

About Our Systems
“Together We Can Grow” have developed four sizes of our Aquaponics systems, but we can also build a system to suit your location if space is an issue?
All of our systems are based on a Continuous Flow, Subsurface, media bed system that is focused on High capacity fish farming.
Why have we chosen to use this method of Aquaponics system?
Media Grow Beds:
Are awesome for two main purposes;
One; creates the largest Bio-Filter out of any system for more fish production
Two; have the ability to grow most vegetables compared to the other styles
The downside; is the cost of filling beds with media, but there are a lot of different media to use.
keeping water away from the surface has amazing benefits to the system by, reducing algae, controlling water temperature, and allowing plants to breathe.
Constant water flows through the grow bed delivers fresh oxygenated water throughout the system faster, moves the ammonia into the bio-filter, and moves solids quickly, not allowing build-up.
High Capacity Fish production:
Fish products to the key to the profit margin of any Aquaponics farm, more fish more profit.
We have de-engineered our Aquaponics system to operate with the minimum about of machinery and have also designed our Grow House to be portable.
Please have a look at the individual Aquaponics systems that we have as we have provided some basic details, images and a calculator that you can interact with that will give you a possible revenue outcome that the Aquaponics Farm could yield?
We would highly recommend using one of our standard systems as they are designed to maximize yield and profitability.
Our Standard Aquaponics System Builds
Commercial 8B/25-S (Balanced)
Green House size; 15m wide x 46m long;
Containing: 8 rows of grow beds x each being 25m long supplied by 2 x 40,000 Lt, 2 x 20,000Lt and 1 x 5,000lt fish tanks
This is a great start of system and is perfect for the project, due to size. This is the minimum build that TWCG would recommend due to cost to return ratio.
Commercial 8B/25-F (Fish priority)
Green House size; 15m w x 65m long
Containing: 8 rows of grow beds x each being 25m long supplied by 4 x 40,000 Lt, 4 x 20,000Lt and 2 x 5,000lt fish tanks (perfect rotation build)
This is TWCG favoured build, and is recommended where the fish species can be used that have fast grown and size, such as Tilapia (5.5months to 450gm to 500gm)
Commercial 8B/50-V (Vegetable priority)
Green House size; 15m w x 70m long
Containing: 8 rows of grow beds x each being 50m long supplied by 2 x 40,000 Lt, 1 x 20,000Lt and 1 x 5,000lt fish tanks
This build is where fish species have a slower grown rate to reach the desired market size, so Vegetable production now is the key revenue producer and due to bed sizes sq/cubic meter can be highly increased
Commercial 8B/50-R (Revenue priority)
Green House size; 15m w x 100m long
Containing: 8 rows of grow beds x each being 50m long supplied by 4 x 40,000 Lt, 3 x 20,000Lt and 2 x 5,000lt fish tanks
This build is what TWCG considers the True Commercial system, with the perfect balance between Vegetable and Fish production, which will create a high level a turn to the investment.
