Produce Marketing

The truth is you don't make any money growing vegetables.  To make money  you have to sell the vegetables.  At least 80% of a commercial aquaponic farm business has basically nothing to do with aquaponics.  So instead of talking about commercial aquaponics, I want this group to be about selling produce.See More

"Hi Pat, You mentioned ..." modified raft beds where they fill and drain"  and ..." some material in the bottom as media, but not nearly enough to plant in".  Why drain and flood a raft ? Why have media along the bottom…"

"Have you considered a Geodesic Dome ? Do a Google search for them. A manufacturing  company is located in Colorado and you can pick it up at the factory. Several sizes and aquaponics can easily be incorporated in the system.    "

Welcome Queen KL,

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 right corner, “Start Here” section of the Main 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.
