The Circle of Life

Circle of Life
leaves

Plants consume light energy, water and C02 along with nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus to produce seeds, flowers and fruits.

Animals and insects eat these seeds, fruits and flowers for energy and leave behind excess water, carbon and other organics, which we call waste.

bacteria

Bacteria and other microbes eat this waste and break it down into accessible molecules (fertilizer) like nitrate (nitrogen) and phosphorus. During this process C02 is also generated.

plant

These accessible molecules are again consumed by plants and the natural re-cycling of nature is complete and an ecosystem emerges.

Aquaponics

salmon2

Coho salmon are fed and generate waste in tanks.

bacteria

Microbes (bacteria) convert waste in water to fertilizer and C02.

leaves

Water is pumped to plant beds where plants receive the fertilizer. Air is exchanged to allow plants to absorb the excess C02. 

water

Clean water is captured through transpiration of the plants allowing Habitat to reuse over 99% of the water in its ecosystem.
