Thanks for the friend request, but if you need to contact me, it's always better to do so through our website, Mainly, it's because of how busy we are, but also because Sylvia has proven herself to be extremely adversarial to us, sadly enough. Wish there were not so much ego involved in this tiny community, but there certainly seems to be. This is HER site, and I do not wish to tread upon her territory. Odd, since she and Murray attended our training in Florida (for no fee whatsoever), but whatever. 

Much respect,

Hi Miguel - Recently went past Graaf Reinett on my way to the family game farm (my uncle's, not mine, drat!!) in Kimberley.  You have some nice discussions and groups going.  As soon as I have my head out of project proposals I will make some comments

Welcome Miguel :-) 

I am sure that you agree that Aquaponics is a fantastic way to grow both fish and vegetables naturally. Love to see some pictures of your system.


God bless :-)

Welcome Miguel,

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.  

A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

Please participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
