Hi, I'm Kind of new to this but starting out big right out of the gate. I have a 1000 gallon fish pond in my back yard and a 210 gallon fish tanks in my basement. So I do have experience with fish and gardening. My wife and I used to have a 1 acre garden of a farm. We want to go into business with aquaponics in the future.

Trying to get our new system up and running. Had to make a decision yesterday. We could not afford pond lined for our grow beds just yet. I used a new tarp I had laying around and put visqueen over that. I know this will not hold. If I can get one year out of it I will be happy. Yes this means I will have to dig it all out. I just did not want to miss our growing season for this year.

Welcome Dave!


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 Home 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.
