Spotted some FREE LAVA ROCK on craigslist.

This year I plan on only doing direct seeding in my aquaponic garden. I cheated a little, I placed some corn, tomato, bell pepper and cucumber seeds in zip lock bags with a moist paper towel. I placed the bags on top of my fridge for 2 days then added the seeds to one of my growbeds. Once I see these plants poke through the surface I will do the same on the next growbed.

Here's a few links to planting guides

though I prefer Discussions for specific topics, am trying to keep an open mind and so will respond via Comment and see how it goes. 

Have discontinued buying Hydroton or similar products due to environmental concerns (mined product requiring lots of fossil fuel for production and transport).  I'm guessing lava rock might be a bit better environmentally, and it's certainly cheaper - can get it free sometimes on Craigs List when people re-landscape, if you don't mind washing it.  Am also intrigued also by biochar after seeing presentations at AA conference last fall.  If it pans out, it would be excellent environmentally - sequesters carbon, little or no emissions in production...here are my notes on biochar from that conference.

I've started my build of my aquaponics setup in my greenhouse. I am using the INDY 11.5 plans from Murray Hallam. What is everyone using for media? I priced expanded shale and it is close to $110 a cubic yard. Yikes! According to the plans I'll need close to 5 yards.

Thank you Paul for the clarification.  Is the coalition planning any activities this spring?  Your postings have been very helpful to me.  Thank you again for the links previously submitted.

original AP operation at Sterling has been discontinued.  Not sure of current status up there

Thank you Tom

There was someone working with Sterling Caviar In Elverta, but it is not a true closed loop system as it was using the waste water from the sturgeon tanks and the dumping it. Hard to get an aquaculture farm to change methods.

Thank you Paul!   Where is your farm located?   prediction for visits?
