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 still have 3 - 4 seats available... to be comfortable.  There is also a large space in the back to cart your extra things around.  Send me an email, I will update everyone tomorrow.  TwoJay.  jmarhk@gmail.com

Looking for a ride, I'm not fuzzy as they say as these will be the first aquaponic system that I see with my own eyes. I'm from Iceland and I don't have a USA driving licence.

Geri,

 

I thought that you were riding with us, but I see you have accepted another. I had you down for our group but will cancel that out and you can go with the other.

 

we just arrive at the hotel from Denver.

 

Jimmie

Michael

I just arrived as well. Not sure what the plan is...good food and party aquaponics style? I have a vehicle and I am planning on going to the three nearest farms tomorrow.

There's a very nice but pricey restaurant called Primo that's about 15 minutes away if you're up for that. Organic food, etc. Let me know. I'm in 701 but am headed to the pool in a few. If I go I'd like to go on the early side and we'd need to call them to see if we can get in.

701... how'd you get up to the penthouse?

 

Not so great. Right across from the elevator with the hum of the highway  in the bg.
