Aloha! Thanks for the friend invite...unlike Sylvia's message to you, this one is not automated....I do not participate here, mainly because I have run afoul of the ridiculous politics in this tiny community, largely because of Sylvia, whose site we are on. 

Because I respect that fact - this is Slyvia's site - if you would like to communicate with me or Tim directly, you can reach us through our  website, or directly by emailing friend@hawaiiantel.net, or Tim at training@friendlyaquaponics.com. Please feel free to explore our  website - from what others have told me, we offer more on our website for free than others do in their entire trainings. 

THANKS!

**Susanne**

PS I absolutely HATE the word "aquapon". It reminds me of "capon", a neutered male chicken. We use the word "aquaponicist". It may be slightly harder to say, but it seems to be a better word to describe us. But that's just me... =)
