2020 Local Real Food Hero Award

Kevin Childerley, Founder of Santa Barbara Aquaponics

Presented by Santa Barbara Permaculture Network at 12th Annual Santa Barbara Community Seed Swap/Duodécimo Anual Santa Barbara Intercambio de Semillas del Comunitario 

Once again we will be honoring a Local Food Hero at the Seed Swap!  This year the award goes to Kevin Childerley,  founder of Santa Barbara Aquaponics.  Kevin is a  passionate Aquaponics innovator & educator, sharing with his community the potential of this unique food growing strategy that combines aquaculture & hydroponics,  in a closed loop system.  Committed to demonstrating it is possible to grow food sustainably close to home while using less space, water, and energy, Kevin continues to experiment & refine his projects, knowing this is just what will be needed in future decades for our growing population.  Creatively linking to the local economy, Kevin recently moved into a 20,000 sq. foot greenhouse and has already begun providing organic produce for local restaurants, demonstrating how we can reduce carbon emissions by eliminating travel miles of food that comes from too far away.
