Aloha Gary

You are not alone in this.  There is a lot of us out here even in Hawaii.  I am out in Waianae.  I know to some in Honolulu that seems like it might as well be on the mainland.  We have more than one person into aquaponics out here in Waianae. 

Welcome you will love the site.  I have been here almost 2 years and I am addicted to aquaponics but also to this site.

Welcome Gary,

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.
