Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I am a 22 year old process technology graduate that decided to spray paint after my internship at Georgia Gulf. I picked up the skill after watching skill after watching you tube videos. During my month off there was a process of watching two to three hours of how to videos, some Bob Ross, and during breaks paint three to five poster boards. In between those videos I was doing research into designing and building aquaponic systems. It has been a great experience learning different art styles and applying them to my dreams of owning and operating an aquaponics farm. When I was in school at Denham Springs High a course was offered that introduced me to drafting and using auto cad. That is when I was imersed into engineering and design. I plan on taking my degree and education in Process technology and my artistic abilties to build a grass roots movement around a local aquaculture farm/restaurant health and wellness center for Baton Rouge.
This is a small five to ten year dream of mine that I hope blooms into something other than a just a business. I would like it to inspire people to want to have aquaponics farms of their own. During that time I will work as a waiter, continue my education at LSU to obtain a bachelors degree in some form of engineering /design, and use the funding from my art to act as catalyst for that dream. For each painting sold I plan on attaching a 50% incentive on the sale. Half of the money earned will go to funding the materials and technology needed to get the farm designed, built, and maintained efficiently.
Trying to move into a more sustainable life style is becoming a great way for me to channel my creative abilities. It has made me break out of my shell and start speaking, writing, and doing something about the way we are all currently living. There are so many great ways to improve upon our daily lives, and just as many creative and fun ways to accomplish the goals set before us. There is no possible way I can get this accomplished on my own and never have planned on doing so. Each conversation I have, each paragraph I write, every painting sold will get us all closer to a better future for our community, city, and eventually the world.
