Jon Parr was at our Wilton Farm last week helping us thru our Food Safety and Organic Certification.   We did get Organically certified and will be ramping up production.   

Here is an article in the Washington Post about our project.  Please Note that UC Davis was not involved untill after design and construction was complete.

If anyone is still out there, one of our own needs a hand. Our friend, and mentor, Jon Parr lost his home and farm to the volcano in Hawaii.

If you would like some skilled labor help , I am a contractor I may be available for some limited specific projects. I live in Lodi and I am in Wilton weekly to service one of my clients' koi ponds. I'm not looking for work for company , but I am interested in what your doing.

Just a notification - we are building a 24,000 square foot greenhouse in Wilton that is attached to an existing sturgeon farm.   We have been running a 8'x50' test DWC raft bed for almost a year now.  We will begin the interior build out October 2nd.  As we progress and get running we may have tours available.

Spotted some FREE LAVA ROCK on craigslist.

Comment by Max47 on February 13, 2016 at 10:48am
This year I plan on only doing direct seeding in my aquaponic garden. I cheated a little, I placed some corn, tomato, bell pepper and cucumber seeds in zip lock bags with a moist paper towel. I placed the bags on top of my fridge for 2 days then added the seeds to one of my growbeds. Once I see these plants poke through the surface I will do the same on the next growbed.

Here's a few links to planting guides

though I prefer Discussions for specific topics, am trying to keep an open mind and so will respond via Comment and see how it goes. 

Have discontinued buying Hydroton or similar products due to environmental concerns (mined product requiring lots of fossil fuel for production and transport).  I'm guessing lava rock might be a bit better environmentally, and it's certainly cheaper - can get it free sometimes on Craigs List when people re-landscape, if you don't mind washing it.  Am also intrigued also by biochar after seeing presentations at AA conference last fall.  If it pans out, it would be excellent environmentally - sequesters carbon, little or no emissions in are my notes on biochar from that conference.

I've started my build of my aquaponics setup in my greenhouse. I am using the INDY 11.5 plans from Murray Hallam. What is everyone using for media? I priced expanded shale and it is close to $110 a cubic yard. Yikes! According to the plans I'll need close to 5 yards.
