There is an urgency to shift how we live in the world. Growing and sharing healthy, clean food while conserving resources is one way many people are choosing to adjust to the changeover. In direct response, aquaponics, the raising of fish and plants in a recirculating system, is currently at the forefront of…See More
This group is dedicated to those who are interested and growing in wicking beds. Wicking beds in conjunction with aquaponics can enable us to grow just about every crop that cannot be grown in standard aquaponics. Lets discuss deign, operation and whatever aspect of wicking bed growing you can think of.See More
I'm Chris Schup, founder and designer of Root & Ramble, an apparel brand for people who grow stuff. I made the Aquaponic Farming T-shirt for your kind of life and adding sweat, algae or fish poop will only enhance its magical powers and make it infinitely more comfortable. Swing by the shop for a closer look: www.RootnRamble.com
Root & Ramble is a hybrid of my creative heart and my eco-conscious soul. It was inspired by my 25-year journey as an organic gardener. A journey that launched me into a headfirst, learn-by-doing approach to life as a farm volunteer, biodynamic practitioner, and student of aquaponics.
I am driven by unwavering curiosity and a desire to do good by this planet. I am one person trying to make a larger-than-one-person impact. And I am not alone.
The not-so-secret mission of Root & Ramble is to champion the hard-working people who grow and nurture things, and to inspire others to join the movement and change our world.
The way I see it, many of us are going in the same direction. At the end of every day, if we can say “today I was part of the solution,” then we’re doing all right.
I understand that Root & Ramble is a small part of the big picture. I make clothing and gear for aquaponic growers and other nurturers of the natural world. Unfortunately, t-shirts by themselves can’t do much. But on the right person, surrounded by a like-minded (and equally well-dressed) community...these shirts can make everything a little better.
If you want to be the first to hear about new products, killer deals and super-secret discounts, swing by the shop and sign up. I won’t share your address with anyone because that’s not cool.
