Brandon Hebor

Brandon Hebor is a graduate of the Seneca Sustainable Business Management program (formerly the Green Business Management) and is currently an urban fish farmer and hydroponics expert. Put these together and what Hebor really does is aquaponics, raising tilapia, and growing massive heads of leafy greens and microgreen sprouts from nutritious fish poo on Ripple Farms, which he cofounded with Steven Bourne. With his business partner, Hebor speaks at events and teaches an Aquaponics 101 workshop–complete with a demonstration aquaculture unit. The pilot Ripple Farm sprouted at Toronto’s Brickworks complex. Ask Brandon where his next aquaponics systems have dropped.
