Motivated to grow my own food by not knowing where my food comes from or what's in it. I suck at gardening, kill everything.. I like the automation aspect of aquaponics. Feel like a mad scientist in may garage, I'm sure the neighbors think I running a grow-op.... Enjoying the Tilapia now growing out and reproducing..

Hi Darin,

I am in Fort St. John/Dawson Creek area. We are presently organizing a 9 city/town Lecture Tour with Northern Lights College in the Peace area of Northern B.C.

I'm in Crawford Bay, West Kootenays.

I have a few tilapia of my own:

I need more tilapia for the barrelponics that will run in the greenhouse at Chuckleberry Community in Taghum, up Nelson

Spring is coming, the system is almost ready.

Do you have any fry or adult you can sell me?

Hey Darrin, 

I'm currently setting up a small aquaponics project for an office in Abbotsford, Was wondering if you have any excess tilapia you'd want to sell?

Hi Darrin,

I love your theory on aquaponics addiction! I think I'll post it on the home page if you don't mind...
