Hi Earl - your greenhouse looks amazing, what is the growing area size? I'm developing a project for an organization that wants to employ aquaponics in an urban setting. 

Everything looks good!

Hi Mr. Ward,

I read about your business in the NWI Times, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in participating in the 2012 Northwest Indiana Earth Day Celebration on April 21. I think residents would be very interested in learning more. I know my husband and I are fascinated and wanting to learn more, which is a reason I signed up for this. Please consider. We think hydroponics would be an awesome addition to ED.

Hello Mr. Ward.

May I ask if you have your system design in google sketchup?

This is exactly what I want to do in my backyard and the design will help me. 

Thank you in advanced.

Great meeting you too Earl.  Beautiful greenhouse, btw.  It's nice to see the images to match your descriptions.

The conference was too short (all the good ones are), certainly look forward to more discussions.

Hey Earl,

We've been out of touch for a while but working hard at getting started.  We have had a long drawn out process to acquire close to 6 acres of possible brownfield for our project.  Currently EPA Region V is working with us to get the testing done.  We'll keep you posted.  I know we are going to take you up on your offer for help.
