Hi George, welcome. Feel free to check out (and join) Sacramento Aquaponics (under Groups in the green banner at the top of the site). Of course there are Bay Area aquponics folks iyou can connect with, but if you look the other way up I-80, you'll find some not far from you too (Vallejo and all the way up to Sac and beyond...)
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 left 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.
