About Trifecta Ecosystems
It’s time to face the facts: as urban populations skyrocket and the average age of farmers continues to rise, a new wave of growers is needed to create a sustainable food system for the future. At Trifecta Ecosystems, we’re creating incentives for communities to grow their own food while raising awareness about sustainable farming through education, workshops, and city projects. We call this the City that Feeds Itself™ initiative.
WHAT IS THE CITY THAT FEEDS ITSELF™?
The City That Feeds Itself™ is our initiative towards giving our community the tools it needs to grow its own food. Learn more about the City That Feeds Itself™ here.
The Trifecta Ecosystems journey began when founders Spencer Curry and Kieran Foran came to a clear realization about the food on their plates: in order to really know exactly what they were consuming, they would have to take control and grow their own food. After some extensive research and late night planning, these new farmers had discovered that aquaponics was the most durable, sustainable, and efficient way to grow food in any environment. It didn’t take long before they were growing greens and small vegetables within the confines of a dorm room, and within a few years they expanded to a backyard aquaponics system that operated all year long.
Today, Trifecta Ecosystems has grown into so much more than just a small farm with a big dream. With a brand new 3,500 sq. ft. indoor farm located in Meriden, CT, multiple systems for personal, educational, and city-wide use, and a WeeklyHarvest CSA program that provides fresh greens and salad to local and surrounding communities, we’re working to change our world’s food economy, one sustainably fed city at a time. By empowering farmers in urban environments and educating others on the true potential of aquaponics, we’re planting the seed of change and showcasing how this ancient, yet extremely effective method will adapt the way we interact with food for good.
