Ili’ili Farm, Waianae, Oahu
Have you heard of aquaponics? Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that grows both plants and fish while recycling fish waste and converting it into plant food.
Tucked into the beautiful Lualualei Valley on the leeward coast of Oahu, there are hundreds of family farms growing a range of produce for the island. One of the newest in the valley is Ili’ili Farms, a certified organic aquaponics farm, which we had the pleasure of visiting recently!
