You sent me a message a few weeks ago and said you make it to the I-17 and thunderbird area sometimes. Was hoping maybe we could touch base and try and set up a time for you to check out my system give me a tip or three. Please call or text me at 602-909-6858. I'm sorry I lost the message that had your phone number.
Hey David, I just have two aquariums ornamental fish: Angels, Zebras, Cats and fin tails (algae eaters). One tank is 10 gal and the other is 30. I've had organic gardens my entire life until this year. I recently had to sell my house and move to an apartment. No outside room to experiment. Not many jobs for administrative assistance these days. I'm still diligently looking for temporary so I can stash away $$ for the move. I too want to get totally involved in setting up aquaponics at schools and helping to educate students about it. Show Low will be within 30-60 minute drive of where we probably will be so I think it would be cool to work help each other launch. If everything happens how I want, May will be when we can start building and installing everything. Keep me posted and I'll do the same.
David, I will need a lot of assistance. I will be attending two SCORE workshops, one related to all aspects of putting together a business plan and the other for managing your cash flow. I will get Will's book today. Glad to hear first hand that it was helpful. I'm going to try to plan a drive out to Arizona hopefully before winter, say late October and I would love to include a tour of your aquaponics set up and of anyone else's if possible. I would eventually like to do this on a large scale so I will contact Dr. Brooks. Thanks again.
Hi David , Thank you for your friendship, my wife Dawn Marie and I welcome you with open arms. We are new to aqua farming we have been doing research on this project for about a year. We like to spend our time before we spend our money ha ha. We live at the crossroads of Show Low and Vernon ,we have two and a half acres and we have been here since 2004. I belong to a few farming co-ops and I will start a business class at the Small business administration in Show Low in the fall. I expect to be growing late this year and selling next year . We have a small shed 15 ft. by 30 ft. We will start small and grow from there.We are both retired ... Time on our hands ...We are just beginning,..We pray for guidance, We are pleased to be a part of this new way of life for all, Thanks, Danny & Dawn Lopez
i started out with bell siphons, i didnt like the water level always changing, so i pulled it out and i change the length of the stand pipe according to the age of vegetable. high water level for seeding, and lower it as the plants grow, kinda make them chase the water more.. seems to be working out great
Thanks for the comment. The system about 1 month old so it hasn't seen the middle of summer yet. Here in Tx it is starting to get warm and my temps are ranging from 72 to 80 degrees. This tank is in the ground, so I hope that helps when August comes.....If not, I may be sticking ice blocks in for the Talapia!
