The Wonderbag is a very simple slow-cooker that Feeding in Action has adopted to improve the environmental sustainability and efficiency of our daily operations. The Wonderbag is placed around a pot once the food has reached boiling point on a stove. Instead of using electricity, the Wonderbag continues to cook the food using heat trapped inside the bag. The Wonderbag can save up to 30% on electricity & gas costs and prevents flavours, water and nutrients from escaping the pot, making food tastier and using less water. You can find out more about Wonderbag at their website http://nb-wonderbag.com/.
Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics.
Sustainable Aquaponics has partnered with Feeding in Action to build a “village aquaponics” system to help meet the food supply needs of the feeding programme. The vision is for residents of Stellenbosch to be taught how to maintain and operate their own sustainable “village aquaponics” system and thus become more food independent.
