Welcome to Our Aquaponics Greenhouse at Hilldale Retreat, Nuwara Eliya
At Hilldale Retreat, nestled in the picturesque hills of Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka, we take pride in our commitment to sustainable and innovative practices. Our Aquaponics Greenhouse is a testament to this dedication, where we combine aquaculture and hydroponics to cultivate an array of fresh, organic produce.
What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a symbiotic system that brings together aquaculture (the raising of fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in water) in a closed, recirculating environment. In this unique ecosystem, fish waste provides an organic nutrient source for the plants, while the plants help filter and purify the water for the fish.
Our Bountiful Harvest
In our Aquaponics Greenhouse, we focus on growing a diverse selection of greens and herbs, including:
Lettuces: From crisp Romaine to tender Butterhead, our lettuces are bursting with flavor and nutrients.
Bell Peppers & Chilies: Our vibrant bell peppers and zesty chilies add color and spice to our culinary creations.
Salad Cucumbers: Crisp and refreshing, our cucumbers are perfect for salads or snacking.
Herbs: From aromatic basil to zesty cilantro, our fresh herbs elevate every dish they touch.
And More: Our selection is always expanding, so you can expect a variety of seasonal produce throughout the year.
