Eric Maundu, Kijani Grows

Growing up in Kenya, Eric understands the challenges faces with farming in low-resource environments. Through his organization, Kijani Grows, Eric has been developing large and small scale aquaponic systems to make it easier for individuals to grow their own fresh food sustainably, even if they don’t have much space or live in a food desert. One of the coolest things about Eric’s aquaponic systems is that they’re smart- really smart, because Eric designed customized hardware that lets you monitor things like temperature, humidity, pH and CO2 levels and a way to easily visualize the data to see how your aquaponic system is doing day by day. Eric previously worked out of American Steel Studios in Oakland, CA and is now a resident at Manylabs in San Francisco.
