Thanks for the friend request, but if you need to contact me, it's always better to do so through our website, www.friendlyaquaponics.com. Mainly, it's because of how busy we are, but also because Sylvia has proven herself to be extremely adversarial to us, sadly enough. Wish there were not so much ego involved in this tiny community, but there certainly seems to be. This is HER site, and I do not wish to tread upon her territory. Odd, since she and Murray attended our training in Florida (for no fee whatsoever), but whatever.
I saw your post on the jobs board about O'ahu Aquaponics intern positions. I was there for work about year ago and had the chance to visit the amazing Olomana Gardens. As I understood it they accepted people to come live there and work on the farm in return for room and board. It's definitely worth the drive out there and if you can catch a tour they are very informative. hope that helps!
I live in Waianae and am happy to have another person from Hawaii on the blog. I say dream big with your aquaponics. Start slow get the whole thing in your mind and start to grow. You will love this site.
