I have a small ebb and flow system, approximately 30"x72", that I started within weeks of purchasing my wife an AeroGraden. I have been bitten by the bug! I am now contemplating trying to expand into an urban greenhouse system like I saw at Growing Power in Milwaukee.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I am interested in all things green and sustainable. As a Civil Engineer I believe that any sustainable development would be enhanced by adding an aquaponic system. I believe that incorporation of vermiculture, geothermal, and solar power will further strengthen potential designs making them more cost effective and allowing for even greater food production in colder climates.
Was great to get to see Philips Aquaponics systems and once he is past the major construction phase of his We Grow Dreams system, I hope he will pop in here a little more to comment on how his Mixed system using gravel beds as filters before his big raft bed works out for him.
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 join in. Always thrilled to have experienced growers join us – please post some photos of your system!
I recommend you get in touch with Tawnya and JD Sawyer in this community who are currently running a Growing Power style system in Denver.
