What you say is true, but what she is buying is system, support team, a product that works. Sure I could build PVC pipes and get medium. I do tons of DIY hydroponics, why I purchased some Zipgrows is because I met Nate and I liked the…"

"Great site! Looks like things are going good.
Yeah, there is very little money in foam rafts with Beaver around. I can buy there molds shipped to my door for $7 each, and it costs me $6 to blow them from my own mold, which cost me $20K. But…"
"I ended up going with Beaver (I didn't feel like I had a choice). I remembered yours but couldn't find anything on the web so I figured you weren't selling them yet. There is some major demand on the east coast. I spent around $650…"
"What up, Paul? How did your project go? Hopefully excellent, and you will post some pics. BTW, Beaver is in Canada, and my company CleverPonics is in Cali. I may send my mold out to Virginia so you can save the shipping and have them made…"
Hello,I'm about to purchase around 200 4X6 raft beds but the only dealer I know is Beaver plastics in California. I'm surprised I couldn't find a direct post on this since most people do DWC and either make their own or buy them setup. Anyone have any resources to a plastic company that would make them on the east coast? I'm in Virginia. I know shipping is really high so I'd like to pick them up.-PaulVAfarmer.comSee More
"Interesting concept. Do you have a pick with the tomato plant grown upside down in full swing such as 6-10 feet hanging? I'd believe it would just break off being too heavy. I'd suppose you've done upside down strawberries too?"

I read your Bio and was wondering if you have found work yet? I currently have a small farm in Central/Western Illinois. I am in the very early stages of building a commercial aquaponics business. I am relatively new to aquaponics and am looking to bring someone in to help me either as a business partner or employee. I am not looking for a financial backer. I have already purchased much of the infrastructure for the business. I am looking for someone to help me get the business up and running and someone to do much of the day to day maintenence. Feel free to contact me if you are interested. MY email address is email@example.com
