In 2010, Michael Hensel went on an impact trip to Cambodia and was deeply changed by the experience. He returned to the United States intent on finding a way to help the children in Phnom Penh develop better food resources through gardening. Over the next 6 years, Michael studied sustainable farming especially aquaponics. Aquaponics is a closed-loop food system in which fish create nutrients for plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. Michael concluded that aquaponics is the future of food production because:
-Fish waste is a super food for plants; they grow 50% faster than normal agriculture.
-Because of how aquaponics systems are maintain, plants are put in gravel instead of soil. This means they can be planted more densely, growing more food in a smaller space.
-Aquaponics uses 90% less water than normal agriculture.
Today, Michael travels the world, meeting his global clientele and developing strategic partnerships with local and international aquaponics experts in order to build, educate and expand the impact of the koyaproject.
