"As it appears to me now, the Park's Administration would ultimately be responsible for the maintenance of the system.  But more importantly, the intent would be to have it as a Community Garden."

"I dip or paint beeswax onto anything like styrofoam for several reasons.  One, it prevents any flaking of the materials into the system.  Two, it is natural and organic. Three it is tough, holds up well in production systems and adds long…"

Joseph,

Recently I was asked to consider doing something for the Moore Memorial Park!   Naturally, I started thinking an AP system would be neat.  They are just finishing a decorative pool and gazebo.

Perhaps the pool (about 2' deep) could be retrofitted for an Aquaponics system.  Anyone have any ideas, comments or suggestions?

Hi Joe. Our equivalent is a product called Maxicrop. Here is a link to it on our website - http://theaquaponicsource.com/products.php?cat=13. I use it every time I cycle up a system.
