Welcome to Colorado Aquaponics 
Growing Local Food and Minds 
 Since 2009 we have been fully dedicated to practicing and teaching  aquaponics for the betterment of our family, our community and  our planet. We feel strongly that aquaponics and other sustainable  farming methods that can locally produce fresh healthy food are  vital for our survival.

Tawnya and JD Sawyer operate a 3,200 sq ft aquaponics farm called Flourish Farm working in partnership with the GrowHaus, a non-profit urban farm, food hub and marketplace located in a food desert community in Denver, CO.

Locally grown, sustainable food is the foundation to healthier eating, healthier lifestyles and healthier more vibrant communities - JD Sawyer

Colorado Aquaponics provides aquaponic training, curriculum, consulting and support programs that can be delivered to individuals, schools, institutions and communities looking to take charge of their own sustainable farming and food security.

Our Mission is to provide people and communities access to locally grown food and sustainable farming solutions through education, demonstration, and innovation.
