Aquaponics in Cherokee Nation

Vian, OK – It all started with an innate passion for helping others, and Oklahoma resident Richard Tyler has it.  Tyler’s passion and hard work has led to a 10,000sf aquaponic facility he constructed in 2015 to address the need for quality food in Vian’s predominantly Native American community. Officially titled Native Oklahoma Aquaponic Harvest (NOAH), the building houses an 8,000-ft greenhouse and a 1,700-ft store, which gives Tyler the ability to grow and provide pounds of lettuce, spinach, kale, grains, tomatoes, and most importantly – fish, to those who need it.
