The Featured Farms

TCLynx Media Wonderland – Mount Dora

The ever popular TCLynx welcomes you to what we call her Media Based Wonderland, and you thought you were going to have to go to Disney to see that! From herbs to tomatoes to banana and lemon trees, check out what until now you have only been able to see in pictures. You can even see her famous Duckponics!

Green Acre Organics – Aquaponics for Profit – Brooksville 

At Green Acre Organics, they like to say that they grow food in the newest, freshest and most green way possible and its called Aquaponics. See nearly 2000 sqft of DWC, a vertical installation and even some media beds are in the works for some wonderful crop diversity to help supply multiple local area restaurants, health food stores, farmers markets and even their own buying club, Green Acre Organics For You!

Sahib’s Research Station – Winter Park

Sahib has managed to pack in a lot into a little. Nestled behind a small strip mall in a bustling area of Winter Park near Orlando, Sahib has perfected combining different types of systems from DWC, to vertical, NFT, media and even some wick systems. Sahib cultivates catfish, Koi and Tilapia to support his multiple growing systems and research efforts.

Cosmo’s Cosmic Greenhouse – Inverness

Anyone familiar with Cosmo’s creative blog posts can only imagine why we are calling this stop on the aquaponic tour route Cosmo’s Cosmic Greenhouse where fairies and the alien Tilapia reside. Made with mostly recycled building materials, this greenhouse is innovation at its best.

Morningstar Fishermen – Aquaponics with a Mission! – Dade City

At Morningstar Fishermen, Hans Geissler was practicing aquaponics long before many even knew what it was. This research facility and mission home base has an incredible agenda of ending world hunger with aquaponics. Visit Hans and learn about their projects in Nicaraqua, Malawi and more.

Green Sky Growers/Aquatic EcoSystems Roof Top Garden – Winter Garden           Green Sky Growers image 

This roof top greenhouse and aquaponic garden was the vision and creation of Florida citrus industy mogul Bert Roper.  Located on top of  The Garden Building in Winter Garden Florida, Green Sky is the first Certified Green building in the world with a commercial scale, aquaponic farm on the rooftop.

 

 

 

Paul‘s Place – Hudson

For those that think living in a neighborhood won’t allow for a sizable aquaponic system, they can’t miss Paul’s Place. Using a beautifully landscaped pond just beside his home, Paul feeds vertical stackers and over 90’ of raft trough. Paul is great example of being in a housing community and still having plenty of grow space.

I am looking for a ride share.  Either to share cost of car or share a ride with someone who has a car and share expenses.  I would be willing to go where ever you want to go.  I am traveling from Hawaii and Driving that much in one day in a world I don't know is a lot of stress.  I will be at the hotel on the evening of the 15th if anyone has extra space,

Raychel,

 

You are welcome to tag along with us if you like. My wife and I will be renting a car on farm tour day. The good news is that rates are low during the offseason. Send me a private message if interested and we can work out the details.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

I am attending the conference and would also love to share a ride or rental vehicle. I'm not fussy about which sites I go to. Please let me know.

Hi Steve - I will also be arriving on the 15th and would like to ride with you if you have the room. I'm not fussed where we go in the least - I am just looking forward to seeing what is out there and having a great time at the ocnference. Let me know if you haven't been booked up already. Needless to say I will pay my share of the rental fees for the vehicle and gas costs too.

Thanks and have a great day. BTW, I am coming in from the West Coast of Canada.

I will also be at the hotel early on Friday but will be without a vehicle. My daughter and her husband and kids are driving with me from E. TN and will be doing other things while I attend the conference. If anyone would have room for me to tag along, I would love to do ANY of the tours!  I am happy to share expenses.

 

Thank you!

I would be willing to rent a car that we could split -- even with others. I'm arriving on Thursday afternoon and could set it up. Does this work for you?

Hi Michael - I'm up for joining you and adding to the pool to pay expenses. I arrive late Thursday evening so I would only be able to catch up with you on Friday morning. May I ask you to email me at vitamav@yahoo.ca and I'll get you my number and maybe I can get yours and I can call you on that Friday morning to catch up with you and plan where we will depart from. I am good to go to any of the tour spots.

 

Thanks Michael.

Hi Steve it looks like we should all get together and see how many cars we need to rent.  It sure would be a lot more fun to do the tours together.  Let me know Raychel

I guess we should how many we get and then decide on how big a vehicle but let's count on it.
