Hamza started Ecobloom with the vision of encouraging the local community to grow fresh food in a sustainable, resourceful, and efficient way. The EcoGarden utilizes an ancient growing technique known as aquaponics. It’s a process where fish waste becomes a nutrient source for the plants.

It’s a natural and effective way of creating the ultimate self-sustaining and resource-efficient ecosystem where plants and fish live in harmony.
The EcoGarden allows users to grow and enjoy 100% fresh and organic herbs and vegetables all year round. Through the EcoGard app, Hamza and this team developed, users can also monitor and control the growing process right from their phones.
