Michael, George and I would love an opportunity to do this. That is about when we will be starting ours and the information we could learn would be invaluable. Our only concern is when you are doing the tour. We are starting a vineyard and the vines are scheduled to start being planted on the first of March. We will be tied up for the first 8-10 days and then we could make it if it wasn't scheduled the first week in March. We NEED to do this so I hope it all works out so we can attend!
We are very grateful to find your site and have learned so much already. I am sharing the information with our County Ag Agents so they may hopefully get involved. That would be a wonderful thing to spread the knowledge and help meet your goal.
At the very least, we hope to meet you in the near future. We put off starting our aquaponics until we get the vineyard started because we are opening a winery also but it doesn't do well without grapes, LOL. Can you grow grapes in aquaponics? So much to learn......If it can be done, that would really make a huge difference. They have a very shallow root system and don't like wet feet so I wonder if it could work? Let us know when you decide on a schedule for the tour.
Trying to schedule something so everyone can attend is nearly impossible. I know we are trying to find a date that will work out for as many as possible but if there are some who can't make it on the scheduled tour date, let me know. I can arrange for you to visit at least my place at another day/time. You do miss out on some of the additional networking of meeting a larger group in person but on a tour with few people present, you get more of your own personal questions answered.
Great! We are on for the 5th. Yes, if anyone cannot make this date, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an alternate date. We also have regular farm tours on the first Saturday of each month as well. There is one tomorrow, Feb 5th, on the tour date, March 5th and then April 2nd.
For those of you that visited us on the last tour, we can't wait to have you back! From the then skeleton of a system to what it is now, I am sure you will be just as excited as we are! Kimberly and George, it sounds like you are undertaking a commercial operation too. I hope you can manage to come by!
Oh and thanks again Cosmo for organizing it!
I have marked my calendar and will be there if vines are in. Nice to see it is available the following month if I miss this one. Thanks for the efforts to do this!!!

Hey all. March is quite the hectic month for us! I apologize for not being able to be too flexible but the 5th would be the best date for us. Although it is the same day as our regularly scheduled farm tour, but should work. The second best date would be the 26th of Feb.
Hi, can I have have times and directions to Sahib's Greenhouse? I now have 4 other interested parties that would like to be on this tour, and I wanted to give them detailed directions to how to get there. Will there be any cost for this tour?
