Leaf & Fin Aquaponics got its start in 2013 when founder David Hedden was volunteering with the Growing Experience Urban Farm in North Long Beach. What started as a small scale prototype to test the capabilities and efficiency of aquaponic systems has since developed into a significant grant to fully retrofit a 1,000sq.ft. greenhouse and implement a cutting-edge vertical farm system that can produce 10,000lbs of plants and 500lbs of fish annually. David continues to engage the Long Beach and Southern California community by providing urban agriculture consulting and educational outreach programming.
