I live in an apartment and have been told that I cannot have a fish tank over 10 gallons. I will likely do a system off of a 10 gallon at some point but I got thinking about things and was wondering…Continue
The Dream is to run an aquaponics system like the one Growing Power has to supplement our emergency food system and possibly to raise some food and fish to sell at Farmers markets to help support the…Continue

We will manage a hub farm with fruit trees, small fruits, herbs, and other perennials
and use it as a processing center for the project.
We will create a duplicatable model for other cities to follow in an effort to make a nationwide impact.
Come join the conversation at our forum about urban farming of all kinds.

So I am trying to think of the best way to grow food in that space. We could do traditional gardening but I don't have time…Continue
