In response to challenges around financing and maintaining an educational school garden, we’ve developed a product called NanoFarms, indoor aquaponic systems for classrooms, that we’re very excited to announce.
2015 has been a year of exceptional growth for Ourfoods. From educational impacts in K-12, county jail, to top universities, we’ve made significant strides towards creating a long-term model for creating more resilient communities, a better food system, and a generation that is equipped to tackle some of the biggest challenges of the future.

“This is the class that goes outside, right?” asked one student on the first day of Tom Bassford’s Aquaponics class at San Bruno County Jail, also known as CJ5. It was the first semester of three since its inception, where shortly beforehand, the Ourfoods team converted a dilapidated hybrid of a basketball court and a neglected garden devoid of life into a functioning Aquaponic system upon which Tom was to base his course. As we came to find out, the symbolic nature of the build came to stand as a microcosm for the course itself.
