I am super excited about aquaponics and am in the process of building my first system. I have just finished building aprox. 300gl in ground pond with fish/plant safe liner and have almost completed 2 3'x6'x16" grow beds out of 2x6 wood boards and same fish/plant safe pond liner.

My hope is too grow this system so that my family and I can be mostly, if not completely, veggie and fruit sufficient by 2014.

I Love Jesus, am an avide music lover, married with 2 beautiful daughters and am always open for input and ideas.

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.
