One of these ways is by sustainable agriculture or “an integrated system of plant and animal production practices having a site-specific application that will last over the long term” – Gordon McClymont. Green River Greenhouse has taken this idea one step farther by forgoing conventional produce growing methods for a more healthy, and more Eco-friendly organic growing method. Organic practices ensure the customer is getting a product that was grown strictly using organic or “from the earth” system inputs, and no synthetic additives. Choosing to eat organic has many benefits ranging from simply eating healthier to disease prevention and disease stabilization. Its important that the methods of Green River Greenhouse, LLC , and farms alike are supported by the local communities surrounding them.[/qbox][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row layout=”normal” margintop=”20″ marginbottom=”20″ paddingtop=”25″ paddingbottom=”25″ bg_color=”#f7f7f7″ bg_repeat=”repeat” bg_stretch=”no” en_border=”no” border_color=”#e8e8e8″][vc_column width=”1/1″][ctitle title=”What is Green River Greenhouse?” color=”#666666″ background=”#f7f7f7″ font_size=”30 – Default” position=”center” uppercase=”yes” font_weight=”normal”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][ctitle title=”Who We Are” color=”#666666″ background=”#f7f7f7″ font_size=”10″ position=”center” uppercase=”yes” font_weight=”normal”][vc_column_text]Green River Greenhouse, LLC. is a sustainable agriculture farm dedicated to producing 100% certified organic produce, and farm-raised tilapia to nearby communities.

Aquaponics, is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrogen-fixing bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system. This system is also referred to as a Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS), however a conventional RAS does not use the growth of plants as part of its bio-filtration.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][ctitle title=”Our Mission” color=”#666666″ background=”#f7f7f7″ font_size=”10″ position=”center” uppercase=”yes” font_weight=”normal”][vc_column_text]Our mission here at Green River Greenhouse, LLC.
