"We use a 10th of the amount of water compared to soil-grown crops. That's because it's a recirculating ecosystem, and all the water is contained. If you were to think about watering a tomato plant outside with a hose, you can guarantee that not all that water is reaching the soil structure, or it just dissipates into the soil structure before the root zone can take up. The water in our systems is completely contained. So the only water we're losing is through evapotranspiration from the plants," says Cody Parker, Founder of Drop the Beet Farms.

In this episode of Good Together, Cody is diving into the world of aquaponics, given the experience he gathered over time with his own farm.
