This is a group for those that want to stay connected with Sahib Aquaponics. Sahib's goal is to be at the forefront of sustainable urban gardening by adopting the latest Aquaponics technologies and growing methods to provide both high quality food and fish, competitively priced, grown locally and grown naturally. Sahib combines the various methods of growing using Aquaponics and the resulting Hybrid systems he creates ensures that there is optimal use of the rich effluent fish water. He recognizes that it is crucial to make use of as much of the solids as possible to grow the maximum possible food in the most economic way and in the least amount of space - which is always at a premium in urban areas.
Sahib's Aquaponics Research Farm uses a hybrid Aquaponics system with deep-water raft culture, media bed, various vertical towers, NFT and recirculating wicking beds. He also combines it all with plants in the ground and waters them with AP water. Complicated yet Sahib explains it all in lay man's terms
