As my Montonegra winter renter always says "different question". He is 92. Here is my different question, What does sustainability mean to you and what are you doing to bring it to fruition ? This morning while collecting soursop fruit under the tree I had an epiphany ( a moment of sudden revelation or insight). "Sustainability is happening at my farm."
I am raising chickens both for the meat and for eggs. This sustains me but I must somehow sustain the chickens. I am raising…Continue
I had yellow limp "greens" in my system. I didn't know what was going on.
I could hear the sound of my aeration bar, the deafening silence of the lack of growth, and the decaying remains of what I knew to be my kale told me to listen closely.
I didn't sign up for this, man. I just wanted to do a small experiment with my son. It was supposed to be easy. Small. Cheap. Passive.
That's not what this is. It is consuming. It is active. It is...…Continue

Hi, I've been up in the Fl panhandle for the last few weeks. My buddy and his wife live in Cottondale, FL. I went up there to help them add an aquaponics system to a green house they were buliding.
While there, we took a few days to build a small aquaponics system for thier churches' produce stand.
The produce stand....His Way Produce, is a ministry to the local area. They are helping to feed lots of folks in the area, that are in need.
The property, that the…Continue

I started my aquaponic garden and could use all the help I can get with a million Questions .lol I am really interested in this .
Well this time last year I was working on a new business called City Bounty and honestly not getting very far. I got busy with other life and shelved the whole thing due to discouragement and busyness. Now spring is back and my green thumb is itching again and I started dreaming again about what CityBounty.org was supposed to be about.
Then I saw a bunch of youtube videos about "vertical farms" and I am very excited about the possibilities.
So citybounty is going to be…Continue

Just wanted to thank Nate & Chris at Bright Agrotech for allowing my wife and I to stop by and see the tower system in action and giving us a few more good ideas for our fledgling aquaponics system.
Thank you Nate & Chris.
I also want to thank Sylvia and Alan at The Aquaponic Source for the tours that they put on once a month of their system. It is always interesting to see other systems and what can be grown in them. Who would have thought that you could grow…Continue
Hello and Welcome to my Aquaponics disaster/Adventure?
Today was my first day of posting. I start this adventure 3 day ago on Friday the 5th of April when I stumbled onto Aquaponics while looking for information on Tilapia. I told a friend about what I found and spent the next few hours reading about it. The next day I woke up and researched some more. Unknown to me my friend had found a person selling the IBC totes. By 11am he called me and let me know what had found and by 2pm we…Continue

Just closed on our little 5 acres in Hoquiam, WA! We are VERY exited! Our plan is to start construction in July on a fully sustainable aquaponic system(trout+channel cats supporting a 30x70 hoop setup)+lions mane and oyster mushrooms(for farmers markets and restaurants)+couple a Dexter cows and some chickens and rabbits for our own consumption. Wish us luck!
