This design for a scalable aquaponics system is to be able to purchase one block at a time for people living on about a dollar a day and then sell their plants to buy more blocks. The design of the block is made so that each block can be fit together like a puzzle piece. There is about a 2.5% grade inside the block so that water can flow from the top to the bottom through the soil.
Also included is a small bracket and motor design to push water to the plants. The goal for a small motor is to limit the flow through the soil as well as to reuse a plastic straw to guide the water.
