Frequently Asked Questions
What is BAMMTM?
BAMMTM is an abbreviation that stands for Backyard Macrobiotic Module - a system which incorporates the growing of both fish (any species of freshwater fish, in tanks atop the ground) and a variety of vegetables (in grow-beds) within a 6 x 6m2 footprint.
How does BAMMTM operate?
BAMMTM utilizes a technology that grows both vegetables and fish within the same system without the use of soil, fertilizer or pesticides. It is run by a solar unit which produces electricity, that powers a bore hole water pump to supply water for the re-circulation system including operating the O2 generators. The water within each tank is recirculated, and feeds the fish, shrimp and plants with necessary nutrition. Since there are no pesticides or fertilizer used within the system, the produce is certified as 100% organic.
What is a BAMMTM community development project?
This program is not designed for corporate entities and is intended to be for a minimum of 2500 families. BAMMTM community projects produce vegetables and fresh-water fish. An empty, bare land with no development is utilized, including people with no stable source of income or sufficient food/water and housing, and we provide them with said resources. In addition to providing the selected families with housing, employment and food security, we build roads within the land pertaining to the 2500 families, in addition to several amenities commonly found within a city - thus developing a community.
