Meike grew up in a forest in Lübeck, Nothern Germany, known for her free and strong independent spirit and a deep connection with nature. Kenya is her country by choice since 2007.

Her love for pure, high quality food and her worries about chemicals and pesticides in her food, combined with the care for environment and food security, brought her to the fantastic solution of aquaponics.

It combines two circulatory systems, growing vegetables and fish. A unique, environmentally friendly way, working cost-efficiently and with no discharge of waste water. Also because no chemicals can be added to the system (simple because the fish would die), no pesticides or herbicides or chemical fertilizers can be used, meaning aquaponics farms are truly organic, and the end products are safer and healthier.

She combines all her experiences in nutrition, sales, marketing, finances, business development and training and brings it into the food security sector. Food security means for her more than availability of food and one’s access to it. Food has to be safe and nutritious, that meets dietary needs and food preferences for an active and HEALTHY life.
It seems she is not alone as the demand for organic products is still raising. Her vision is to make the two ends meet and provide real food security.

Therefore she support organic agriculture investors from their planning to their construction and the turnkey handover of the customized farm system – and is excited about every new project.
