Waste to Harvest


Recycle Food And Yard Waste To Create Fertilizer, Food And Energy


Bioponica teaches farmers how to utilize low tech anaerobic decomposition barrels and its innovative modules for recycling waste and growing plants


For organic and hydroponic growers, Bioponica has developed a method and modules to grow plants organically without fish or manufactured fertilizers.

The extract becomes the nutrient stock containing all plant minerals in a soluble form. When gradually introduced to the Bioponica grow modules, suspended solids are clarified to achieve an appropriate EC and pH and ammonia, phosphorus and minerals levels.

For home and small farm growers, we encourage using 55 gallon barrels with green manures and rainwater to form a liquid nutrient extract.

For commercial farms and homesteaders Bioponica will provide consulting services to design and project manage larger anaerobic digester systems to convert food, paper, fats, meat and livestock manure

Utilizing anaerobic digestate and bi-products allows for the use of methane gas energy, CO2 for plant photosynthesis, liquid fertilizer and compost or vermiculture solids.

Waste sources include food waste, grasses, yard clippings, worm teas and human urine. Each of these sources contributes to a diversity of elements and growth factors that create a rich balance of organic nutrients not typically found in manufactured fertilizers.

Bioponica provide training and simple calculation tools for this practical science with nutrient input requirements, relative to specific plants and total growing area.

Bioponica helps identify and appropriate indigenous grasses, weeds and leaves to feed herbivore and omnivorous finfish and shellfish.

By supplementing fish urine with human urine and green manures and worm teas we can achieve growing capacities equal to hydroponics without manufactured fertilizers.

This approach enhances fertility for plants by supplementing fish urine in order to grow fruiting and heavy feeding varietals (i.e., tomatoes, peppers and flowers, etc.), that require higher levels macro-nutrients including phosphorus, plus secondary and micro-nutrients.

Bioponica encourages the integration of vermiculture, vermicompost and soldier fly larvae in a  are waste conversion bi-products that provide an reliable income stream plus a storable fish and farm animal food


Earthworms are a significant cash crop that feed directly on green manures and operational waste solids including paper and cardboard. Bioponica Vermi-Troughs are designed to optimize growth rate and ease of harvesting of earthworms. As a fish feed, earthworms are a natural source fats and vitamins to the omnivore and carnivorous finfish and shellfish.

Worm castings are another revenue stream when sold as a soil fertilizer and are useful when making foliar sprays and liquid fertilizer teas. They provide a range of plant minerals plus mycorrhizal  growth factors and insect repellants.

Soldier fly larvae are popular fish and farm animal feed and are ideal for recycling fat and meat waste, leaving a residue that can be added to liquid compost for nutrient cycling
