YOUR LOCAL FARMERS MARKET UPDATE
Real food from the farms and homes of the Barossa
Stacey Nash of The Bucket Project
WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THE UNUSUAL NAME FOR YOUR FARMERS MARKET STALL?
Old vineyard picking buckets are the inspiration for our name – we grow vegetables in them at our property at Keyneton. We mainly grow using a system called Aquaponics – it is similar to hydroponics as it involves soil-less cultivation.
WHY IS AQUAPONICS A GOOD SYSTEM TO USE?
Aquaponics is a process that involves a natural interaction between fish and plants, where the fish provide the nutrients for the plants and the plants filter the water. We grow this way because it is sustainable and provides a balanced ecosystem. We also run our pumps off solar power, use mainly rainwater and water is recirculated throughout the system so we use only what is typically used in a backyard garden.
WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU GROW AT THIS TIME OF YEAR?
We are currently selling a range of fresh vegetables at the market including heirloom vine-ripened bite-sized tomatoes, leafy greens, baby spring onions, zucchini, squash, capsicum and edible flowers.
WHO WILL CUSTOMERS MEET AT YOUR STALL?
Stacey and David from The Bucket Project.
