More Taste, Less Waste

Did you know aquaponics helps put toppings on your pizza?
Through the doors of a warehouse near the Bellis Fair Mall is an indoor aquaponics farm, where crops are grown year round.
The farm makes more produce in a limited space with less water than a typical farm, all without using any pesticides or fertilizers.
Barrett Lizza created and runs the whole operation. In addition to designing and building the system on his own, Lizza grows and harvests the leafy greens and herbs himself, and hand delivers them to buyers.
Lizza named the business Da’Vine, and it’s made possible with a technique known as aquaponics.
