Aquaponics On Water Catchment with Jeremai Cann

Grow healthy fish and plants on your water catchment. Learn how to care for your systems and ensure long life.

Bio: Jeremai Cann "Dr. Sustainability" is a Jamaican-born islander whose first teachings on food and water, the keys to healthy physical life came from his parents on their family land.  A graduate of the University of Florida, Jeremai entered the environmental field professionally in 1996 as an Environmental Compliance Inspector with the Miami-Dade County of Florida.  During this time he gained an avid interest in alternative energy systems and organic agriculture. Today, Jeremai kindles his passion for environment education as a consultant and teacher of renewable energy and sustainability here on Hawai'i Island.  Residing in Orchidland in the Puna District, Dr. Sustainability tends to his orchard, builds and sells tiny homes and continues to offer his environmental consultation and educational services to island neighbors near and far.
