Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

Hello fellow Aquaponic Gardners,
I am always interested in reading about the acceptance and use of aquaponics as part of our normal daily life. Here are two new stories that I read recently that I would like to share. Should you have such articles, I would love to read/see them :-)

The Agricultural Research Service (ARS) signed an agreement today with the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) to help commercialize ARS-developed technologies and promote research opportunities with businesses and universities in the Midwest. ARS is the chief intramural scientific research agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).....A part of the Thomas Edison Centers of Ohio, CIFT has a strong interest in local and regional agriculture that supports urban populations, such as aquaculture, hydroponics and aquaponics. As an ATIP Associate, the organization will work with ARS and the Wisconsin Security Research Consortium to develop projects on urban aquaculture in Toledo, Milwaukee and other Midwestern cities.

Congratulations to Chris Newman :

A man named Chris Newman has taken empty greenhouse nurseries and used them for aquaponics -- the symbiotic farming of fish and plants in water.

Newman has turned 14,000 sqft of greenhouse space into a structure of stream channels, gravel beds and water pipes. He intends to shortly use the system to raise fish and grow vegetables commercially under the name "Santa Cruz Aquaponics.”
