I announced today that I'm writing a book for New Society Publisher called "Aquaponic Gardening: A Step By Step Guide to Growing Vegetables and Fish Together". Things I've learned about aquaponics from this community will be featured all over the book, but I especially want to represent the emotional connection that so many of us have with aquaponics by starting each chapter with a quote from someone in here about what aquaponics means to them.
PLEASE help me out by adding to this discussion below. (and by adding your comment to this particular thread know that it will be quoted for posterity )
Aquaponics mimics the best of nature and provides protein and produce by reusing waste. Very few other “systems” can say as much. Eating healthy foods, conserving our precious resources, eliminating the use of chemicals, connecting with others, creating more sustainable lives, and providing hours of entertain, this is why we love aquaponics.
