What We Do

Ingenuity Innovation Center is a community-supported innovation center. We create sustainable solutions in the areas of food, water, new / alternative energy and health and well being and share them using an open-source platform. Here, we invite people from all backgrounds and generations come together to learn, connect and become inspired to incorporate new and old ideas to address the challenges we face on a personal, community and global level. Using an evolving community-supported model, we provide resources, support and education to help in the social innovation

and creation process while also providing pathways to enable new and emerging businesses to develop. We mobilize people’s passions into a new space that can create thoughtful, meaningful and impactful solutions for their community while positively impacting the world. From aquaponics (the merger of growing fish and vegetables in a symbiotic ecosystem), new energy solutions, or innovative business and prosperity based funding and investing models, we serve as a living example where people can get inspired and begin shifting into a more sustainable lifestyle.

Aquaponics

Aquaponics is an ecosystem where symbiotic relationships are formed using nature's way of balance. Here, plants, fish, water and microbes work together in partnership to create healthy, organic results. Nutrient rich produce, thriving fish and pure water are all natural outcomes of this collaborative relationship.
