"@leisannp I'm pretty annoyed at the $5/month dues as well... I know meetup.com costs about $75/year to sponsor a group, but $5/month is a bit extreme to be a part of. I am actually about to just leave the group bc I gots enough bills! I hope…"

since we live so close, maybe one Sunday you are free we can rally a trip to both of our homes! That would be interesting to see the two different ways we are working our aquaponic systems, don't you think?"
"Hey group! Welcome back Alex :)

I wanted to let you guys know that we have two retail fish racks (the kind at the fish stores) that we are getting rid of for lack of space. If you came to our meetup a few months back you may remember them…"

My husband and I have been learning about aquaponics for right around a year. We have really been heavily invested in our system over the past four or five months. We have learned a lot, and continue to learn.
We purchased "Aquaponic Gardening" which is where we learned about this community. We are so excited!
We want to eventually have a commercial operation, and look forward to growing in this community with good networks, new friends, fellow aquaponic gardeners, and the wealth of information that awaits us!
