Old Iron Bath Tub available

Hello dear CA Aquaneers!Anyone in the SF Bay Area (or wherever you want to drive from...) interested in old iron bathtub for their system? It's been outside at the folk's place in the North Bay for many, many years - definitely not new, with stains on the inside from leaves and water piling up over time... but could be just the ticket for the right set up... no claw feet, but looks to have spots where they could be attached. Let me know!Amy415-295-2125See More

Welcome Amy!


Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members--no question is too basic. 


A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.


Please participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.


Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
