How did you find us?
Search engine (Google)
If you found us through a search engine, what search words were you using?
aquaponics
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
Yes
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
Right now I've just got windowfarms that I nourish with fishtanks (a few youtube videos up under Children's Aquaponic Windowfarm). Alas, my non-standard windowfarms sometimes cut out. I attempted a raft hydroponic system (didn't want to experiment with live fish in the mix) and learned a lot).
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I think I'm the first person to ever use a durso siphon in a hydroponic system - at least I've not seen anything else on the internet about durso siphons in hydroponics or aquaponics.

Hello Meg,

I absolutely love your youtube videos , clean and simple, and am planning on patterning my system after your's with the Rubbermaid bins. I loved your idea of the potable water hose, looks good too. Hope to talk back with you soon.

thanks. I must have misremembered what I saw.  I thought that they were bigger.

Hi, Meg.  In your 3x5 vids, where did the cast featherlight concrete stands come from?  I can't find anything similar anywhere.  Maybe I just don't know what to ask for.

Hi Meg,

 

Sylvia let me know what you are up to.  I am in Takoma Park and we have a group of enthusiastic beginners who have been meeting and encouraging each other along.  I was hoping to speak with you sometime to discuss common interests.  I've checked out some of the things you've put online, and they all look fantastic.  Hope to talk to you soon.

We use the same numbering system you do in the US so 3/4 is fine for me. I am still in Florida but will head back to Belize on Monday. It was great to connect with you guys as well.
