COBOURG, Ontario - Feb. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Local entrepreneur, Chris Ball, is excited to launch Waterworks Aquaponics in Northumberland County, Ontario. Chris has had a lifelong interest in food and the environment but when she met her partner Pierre, an avid environmentalist, in 2011 that interest became a passion and a way of life.

For the last year Chris has been studying Aquaponics and working with Scott Weir of Growing Gardeners ( in Calgary to develop Waterworks Aquaponics with the hopes to break ground in the summer of 2014. Waterworks Aquaponics will grow vegetables and Tilapia from a 2800 sq ft passive solar greenhouse year round on 4 acres of land and will sell produce for approximately 200 people through a CSA program and via farmers markets in the summer months.

In addition, Waterworks Aquaponics will do sprouting in a smaller greenhouse on the property and plans to grow shiitake mushrooms and other varieties of mushrooms year round in an indoor facility.

Chris in now in the process of securing funding to build the farm but Government grants and financing are difficult to secure, especially grants for innovation in agriculture. So what options are available to start-up businesses?

Chris found CrowdFunding.

CrowdFunding is defined as: the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.

Working with the CrowdFunding site Indiegogo Waterworks Aquaponics hopes to raise the funds they need to get the project off the ground, literally, and into the greenhouse before the end of the year.
