How did you find us?
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
In process building
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
I am in the process of building the lowest cost of entry commercial system I can. Currently have a 22x32 greenhouse made from recycled lumber. Will be using plastic barrels cut in have for grow beds placed on top of used 2 tier battery racks from back up power systems. Fish tanks will be 2x4(recycled) stud wall construction, with 3/4" plywood lined with used billboard vinyl. Tank inside dimensions 48"wide x48" high x96" long.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I am doing it as I have time and find resources to use, no pressure of financing, business plan etc. The lower the financial cost of entry the sooner and faster the Return On Investment and profit.
