Structured Water-AquaponicsIntelligent Aquaponic Design

  • Water flows in natural curves to retain water structure.
  • Fish provide a constant source of good nutrition. You can use any fish that do well in your climate.
  • Grow nearly any fruit or vegetable with easily controlled ventilation and temperature.


We invite you to join us in building a better future.

An open source project for humans.

Our goal is not to sell lots of dome kits. We want everyone everywhere to build our future. We encourage anyone to duplicate our system using our parts or make modifications and inspire design changes. We intentionally made the design easy to build and modify with substitute parts. Share your creation and design ideas with our community!
Cooperation instead of competition and people before profits.

Anyone can build a Food Machine!

Get started in building a better future in your neighborhood.

Whether you build it yourself, buy our kit, or just buy some of the parts you need – we are here to help. We invite the community to improve the design, add function or build accessories to make the Food Machine ever better.

The Food Machine is built on an aquaponic design that anyone can duplicate.

These were the design criteria.

  1. Use parts that are most common throughout the world
  2. Use parts that could be easily substituted with functionally similar materials available locally.
  3. Use parts that are free and/or cheap
