The pilot project implemented by Green Age NGO. In 2014-2015 a pilot aquaponics farm has been established in the Armavir Region of Armenia, aiming to introduce the extremely cost effective, applicable to poor and environmentally beneficial agricultural technology. The project resulted in identification of most vulnerable target groups (poor/poverty affected), and actual establishment of micro-model farm for practical educational purposes.
In 2014 “Green Age” NGO has established a model aquaponics based micro farm
(granted from the Norwegian Embassy in Moscow) in one of the driest villages of Armenia (Armavir Region, village Apaga “https://goo.gl/maps/3iTN0”). The constructed micro farm has successfully adapted to the available market, and currently is supplying greens to some of the city central restaurants and food centers on 100% of its production. In terms of the contribution to the local community, project intends to achieve successful duplications of the technology among small-medium scale farming businesses through trainings of local growers in innovative agriculture.
The pilot project has resulted in creation of fully operating small-scale production unit, functioning with single time water input. Moreover the farm production was successful integrated into the existing market chain.
