The Phoenix Cafe‘s aquaponics system (in central Bristol) was built by the students of the 2014-15 introduction to aquaponics course. It was designed to produce greens for the cafe, though the fish are ornamental (Koi Carp).
The phoenix cafe itself has a circular-economics model and is built from all recycled materials. Initially Phoenix was serving ‘food waste’ as part of the Skipchen and Real Junk Food project on a pay-as-you-feel basis. Now phoenix hosts a number of local-food focussed pop-up kitchens.
The demonstration project finished in early 2017.
