Hi Jesse. I see you've been using iGrow induction lights. Have you only tested them on a small scale, or have you installed them on a large scale? Are you using them as a primary or secondary light source? What is your opinion on the capital cost of them? Do you believe the claims that they have the fastest return on investment of any lighting source?
Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Hi Jesse,


Their is much going on we are working hard to open our first Urban Farm in Rotterdam (target 20 locations in 5 cities in 5 year) Great, but a very bumpy road that took 2,5 years. The Netherlands is a bit more difficult to get things done in the states. The quality  of your produce have to be from a high quality, prices are low, reculations are very strikt etc etc. (and employees get more money)

But as I said we are going to start and that is a great feeling.

Our fist location will be including field crop in selfcreated, soffruit in semi-hydro, doublegoal chicken  and Aquaponics. Selling threw baskets, restaurants and our own retail and restaurant.  The money is fixed and the builders are starting on the location. in november we have our first jobintervieuws .

to see some pictures go to /


How are you and moly doing I see that you have start your own Aquaponics business.


A nice thing to know is that we work with charlie and a dutch aquaculture organisation on a new AP system wher we can work with different tempatures (fish/plan) and different flows. to get a more ideal environment for the llettuce / herb that are our main focus (fish is hard to sell over here)

I'm glad you were able to stop by.  Haven't had too much time for rest though.  Got home and started working on the plumbing for adding in the expansion of the tower system.  Finally got that all glued together today.  Was hoping the tower delivery would be today but there is still tomorrow.  Hopefully will have that going full tilt come mid October.  Spent an hour in the tree tonight cutting down more lufa and will be washing them tomorrow as I wait to see if the towers are going to come in.

Hey Jesse, quick question, what was the size of the building Sweet Water started in? (sqft). Also, how much fishtank would you say you started with(gallons)?

Hey Jesse,

My name is Rick Garcia i'm from Denver, I was checking out your page and saw a picture of Emanuelle. I met him at Growing Power during the CUA workshops, he took us to Sweetwater. Cool real cool. Im working on small home size systems, of course everyplace has its challenges, but with much collaboration with folks like JD Sawyer and others in our area we are working towards making this a viable means of food production in our area. I am also looking at the larger more established producers such as SweetWater, Growing Power and Friendly Aquaponics as model of what we can become.

Your input and advice can go along way. 

                                                       Thanks Rick

                                                     The Urban Farm


 pass this on to Emanuelle too    Right on

I should say that Mike's had a lot of trouble getting them to work in his aquaponic system- for non-recirc. hydroponics they work pretty good.

That'd be great Jesse, I'm excited to see how it turns out for you. Talk with Mike Cosmo before you go Vertigro- he's had a lot of trouble with them. What's the Wisconsin product you're going to use? Not to bother you, but I'm really interested in other tower products.

your system sounds amazing Jesse! What are you doing for vertical planting? I'd love to see pictures!

Not a bad place at all. Let me know when you need some help, I would be more than happy to lend my services.
