Green Acre Aquaponics

This is a group for those that want to stay connected with Green Acre Aquaponics. At Green Acre, we are focused on optimizing commercial growing with the newest techniques and technologies for integrated system growing.  Recognizing the value of integrating media bed growing into raft (DWC) technology, this hybrid aquaponics design optimizes nutrient density by allowing the additional metabolization of valuable solids typically removed from DWC systems. Why remove the most valuable element in an aquaponic system when it can be utilized to produce better and more abundant growth?

Yep, that sure would Chris!    I just wrapped up a call with Murray discussing that very thing.  The obvious challenges are maintaining flow rate through the troughs, integrating a sump and what type of mechanism will best facilitate outflow to the media bed as well as the drain.

Hey Gina, I was wondering how you are going about converting a DWC trough to media. I have been experimenting with the same idea for a while now but am curious how you are going about it. This could make a good subject for the first discussion in this group.

Wonderful Gina - many challenges to be addressed!
