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.

Hello All,

 

I'm also looking for a ride. I'd love to tag along with anyone that has room. I'm happy to contribute for fuel and I'm not picky about which farms we attend. I'm coming in on Thursday evening, let me know... looking forward to it!

 

Best,

 

Jason

Hi all, Jimmi from Belize here. I am so excited to be attending the coference in Florida next week, I have registered to go on the tour to Green Acre Organics, if anyone has space available my wife and I would love a ride if at all possible. Look forward to hearing from you and seeing you next week.

I still have 2 spots in my car, if you'd like to come along.  I have signed up to visit Green Acre Organics along with 3 other farms (first tour starting at 9am).  Let me know if you're interested.  You can add me as a "friend" so that we can continue this conversation offline.

I look forward to meeting you!

Amanda

Hello, Jason.

I just responded to Jimmi, but the same goes for you.  I, unfortunately do not have room for all three of you, but maybe there are still cars out there that have empty spots?  (please post if you have room!)  I'm sure we can get everything arranged somehow.

I look forward to meeting you, too!

NEED RIDE or Will RENT AND SHARE RIDE TO GREEN ACRE l:30 TOUR.

I am arriving at airport at 10:30 Friday morning and would either like to help pay for a ride to Gina's Green Acre Farm at 1:30 or rent a car and find some folks to share the costs with me.  Besides Gina's place, if there is time for one more tour, I'm hoping for TC's and Sahib's farms.  Thanks!  Please e-mail me at godsil.james@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Okay Aquaponics peeps, here's the deal.  My wife and the rest of the family is coming down... that means I have a 10 extra seats!  We have a 15 passenger van, minus one row of seats, leaves many left for aquaponics travelers.

 

Shoot me an email if anyone is interested, jmarhk@gmail.com.  Donations, for gas money, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks TwoJay

I'm in for a ride and will share gas and fun.  Green Acre tour is full, I've signed up for TCLinyx at 9:00 but will go wherever you go.  Many tours are filling up so just sign us up and let's see Florida!  I'm coming in Thursday night around 8:00pm.
