A link from another AP site, I believe in another AP forum.
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
We have collected some food grade IBC's, pool pumps, misc. electrical and plumbing supplies.... and most recently bought a 30' x 96' greenhouse with all the goodies!
Please tell us something else about yourself.
Our large family hopes to build a sustainable farm business while teaching others how to do the same. Ideally we will be able to work with local schools, colleges or whoever else would like to know more about AP, Organic "type" farming, Animal husbandry, etc. We live live on 25 acres and currently raise chickens for eggs and meat, goats for milk, horses for manure, a few beef steer a year, turkeys & ducks.
two jay tks. my grow beds are going to be 2ft x 8ft x12in.. I plan on having at least 6 of this size beds when done. I'm working with 500 sq. ft.in side my bldg. What is a good price for EPDM liner. I found some at Home Depot for $145.00 for a 10 ft. x 15ft. .45 mil. Is this a fair price? Tks for your advice. Ron
Had a great time getting to know you and touring Florida, this past weekend. Look forward to AP and watching the progress on that awesome growing up project of yours ;) .....as well as the grow house! Rock On! I'll try to get the pics posted soon!
I am in GR and am working on my 1st AP setup. Its a smaller setup with a hoophouse holding a dozen media beds and 2 raceways with 8 rafts for lettuce and things. Nice to meet you and see there are others up here in MI doing Aquaponics. Keep me posted on how you are doing-David
Cool, I wouldn't have put the 2 together. Your system sounds ideal. We are pretty much in the same spot. We are working out the bugs in our system and using Koi and goldfish. We hope to have our larger up and running with an experimental hybrid version of growing power bunk beds.
Hay there and Welcome James. Sylvia, the network creator is out of contact for a bit but I'm sure she will welcome you herself when she gets back. In the mean time here is what she usually tells new members.
