Status: Aquaponics in Iceland

Aquaponics in psychological care

Posted on November 7, 2011 at 10:57am 12 Comments

Hello Ferret! It was a pleasure meeting and getting to visit with you. Sorry I didn't make it back down last night! Waiting for a phone call and fell asleep. My Scottish blood woke me up at 1:30 but you all were gone! :)
