What People Are Saying
"Ahmed, thank you for listening before preaching, asking before telling and importantly being flexible enough to tailor the plan to our needs. Your knowledge of business comes from experience and not just a book." 
- Tony and Wendy, Owners, Island Vapours
Thank you for the valuable information Ahmed ! It is hard to find so much information in one spot.
- Gurjeet Bhattal, Burnaby BC
As someone who likes keeping pet fish as a hobby, I became interested in the idea of aquaponics when I first heard about the idea from Ahmed. I attended one of his introductory workshops (also got to see his whole set up) and found that that aquaponics would be perfect for those with a nice backyard. Imagine having a garden pond with fish that fertilizes your own organic homegrown veggies! Super!
