Hi everbody! I am about to begin my adventure in aquaponics. I will appreciate any advice you may have for me. I have been studying as much as I can and trying to digest and come up with a plan for…Continue
When I started my exploration of greenhouse cultivation and aquaponics, I wanted to heat it all efficiently. The wiseway pellet stove set many other tangents un heating and energy into motion. The steam engine, hydronic heating systems, bio-mass usage, and…Continue

Our bodies only use what it can in that moment and the rest passes through. So, with our rich diets comes an abundance of nutrient rich waste.
For centuries, and even today, human waste is used for agriculture. You may…Continue
Aquaponics is a fascinating method of growing. Creating a micro-eco-system (can you double hyphenate?) is a challenging, interesting, and often expensive endeavor. I enjoyed the research and the fruits of that labor. But, in the Northwest, I found it to be a greater challenge to make it economically practical on a small scale.
Perhaps if I were to use native species of fish and allowed the system to go dormant during the cold and dark season, it may have been more…Continue

Through my research and desire to find an economical means of heating my system, I stumbled upon the Wiseway pellet stove, which I became a statewide distributor for their company and recently sold that…Continue
