Get Involved

Anacostia Aquaponics is looking for serious team members that are willing to invest some time towards advancing aquaponics food production in Washington, DC. If you are interested in becoming a team member, please email brian@anacostiaaquaponics.org with a brief description of your interest in aquaponics; any relevant experience you have to help us reach our goals; and any questions you may have.

More information:
Aquaponics is a highly efficient method of growing plants and fish together in a recirculating, symbiotic environment. It can be practiced locally in urban areas like DC, and provide major ecological, health, and economic benefits to individual growers and our city as a whole. But it is challenging work and it will take a team effort to help aquaponics go mainstream. Anacostia Aquaponics currently has three systems that are constructed; we have a few more systems in development; and we are searching for more opportunities.

Here are some activities that you would be involved in if you become a team member:

  • Maintaining and operating existing aquaponics systems, and assessing their quality of plant and fish production.
  • Designing and constructing new aquaponics systems.
  • Identifying opportunities for new aquaponics systems in the DC area and developing marketing materials and sales strategies to land these opportunities.
  • Researching the benefits of aquaponics, both to individual growers and to society as a whole.
  • Developing Anacostia Aquaponics social media presence, business development, and community engagement.
