Baja Angels of the Sea needs your help with feeding & teaching the children by creating a sustainable environment.

Overview & Purpose
We are very excited about the current sustainability projects underway at the orphanage
located in Primo Tapia, Baja California. These include Aquaponic Garden Project, Fruit
Tree & Raised Bed Garden Project, Poultry/Egg Project and the Sports, Art, Music
Vocational Education & Work Internship Project. Our mission is to implement and
maintain sustainable systems that can feed and fund the orphanage. Our goal is to
create programs that will give the youth skills and opportunities as they transition into
the world beyond the orphanage. We aim to provide hands-on education in the areas of
agricultural, aquaculture and general farming skills that will benefit the youth now and in
the future.

Aquaponics Garden Project
Currently being cleaned, refurbished and restored is a 10,000 liter cistern converted into
a full aquaponics system engineered to supply 4 large grow beds with nutrient rich
water. This system will have the capacity to harvest over 2,000 tilapia every 8-10
months and produce fresh vegetables year around. Aside from fresh fish available to
the orphanage for consumption is the option to sell the fish locally. This will help cover
the cost of current expenses and future needs. One of the biggest demands for the
orphanage is fresh fruits and vegetables. This project will help meet these needs.

Fruit Trees and Raised Bed Garden Project
On about 1 acre of land at the orphanage in Primo Tapia they have an orchard with
various fruit trees. At one time this orchard yielded fruit for the children but since the
pandemic has been left unattended. We have recently begun efforts to revive the living
trees and replace the dead ones. We are currently planning the implementation of
raised grow beds in this area to cultivate fresh herbs and vegetables. Part of this plan is
the installation of 275 gallon IBC water storage containers. In these IBC containers we
will be able to farm hundreds of catfish and use this nutrient rich water for the garden.
It is our goal to help this area to yield the most fresh produce and fruit possible.

Chicken and Eggs Project
Next to the Orchard is a large chicken coop that has been vacant since the pandemic.
Fresh eggs produced directly on the farm will soon be part of the children's diet. We
are happy to announce the first 5 chickens have been donated to the project and more
soon to follow.
