Hey Pierre,

I just joined this aquaponics community here, and I see a few of your systems, they're pretty rad! Anyway, I have some fetal ideas of community outreach with aquaponics. I am not the most experienced, and wouldn't trust my craftsmanship with this project.

Let me know if that sounds interesting, at the least. I'm just trying to get an understanding of what resources I can gather, at this point.

Welcome Pierre,

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 Main 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.
