The objective is to create an investment model to help find the funding to create a network of farm retreats. To create as many farm retreats with income streams while current currency paradigms continues to
They will produce herb and spice crops for the growing floral trade, and to develop accurate cost-of-goods produced for eventual expansion opportunities. A secondary objective is to take advantage of horticultural and related large-garden type farming background (and equipment).
such technique is an “Aquaponics Art System”
