Adaptive Agriculture

Adaptive Agriculture & Aquaponics

This programme focuses on achieving food security and sustainable income generation for communities by strengthening local capacity and helping them to understand and address climate change.


Through this, interrelated issues of environmental degradation, water scarcity and poverty are resolved.


We work with traditional farmers to teach them strategies for conserving resources, growing drought-resistant crops to provide immediate income and food for their families.

A key component of this programme is aquaponics, an innovative and highly intensive food production technique that is easily scalable to meet the needs of smallholder farmers, schools and commercial enterprises. What is Aquaponics?


The INMED Aquaponics logo symbolises the symbiotic relationship of fish and plants in an aquaponics system.


This brand is the guarantee of chemical- and pesticide-free produce of the highest quality and is only used on produce grown in an INMED system.


INMED South Africa has received the AgriSETA accreditation as a certified provider of mixed-use agriculture education and training. 


AgriSETA is a national agricultural sector education training authority that creates and promotes opportunities for social, economic and employment growth for agri-enterprises through relevant, quality and accessible education, training and development in both primary and secondary agriculture, in conjunction with other agricultural education programmes such as INMED’s adaptive agriculture and aquaponics initatives.
