Summing up the last week of activity by hitting on a few key stories that might prove note worthy to a few of the homesteading folks out there complete with photo montage of golf cart jousting and aquaponic trout.
“Aquaponics Gardening: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Vegetables and Fish Together” offers advice and insight into the world of sustainable gardening
Andre Armantrout sent us this wonderful update from a Homesteading Education Month event featuring aquaculture at Snowy Pine Ridge, outside Spokane, Wash.
A general description of how aquaponics works and an easy DIY aquaponic set up.
We received our 3-gallon aquaponic system, graciously donated to us by backtotheroots.com. We were super excited, but we had no clue where to start. Fortunately, the company had included a trifold pamphlet explaining how to set up the system—and it was quite simple.
What exactly is hydroponic gardening? Though it may sound complicated, it’s really not. The word "hydroponic" comes from the Greek "hydro," meaning water, and “ponic,” meaning work. The basic concept is this: growing plants in a nutrient rich water solution rather than in soil.
Everyday families can now provide much of their fresh vegetables using Aquaponics. Aquaponics is the production of edible fish and vegetables growing in a drought proof, no weed, back saving growing system.
Home gardeners and commercial farmers will find much to be enthusiastic about at this three-day aquaponic event.
What if I told you that you could catch fish for dinner right in your own backyard, and they were growing the veggies for the rest of your dinner until you caught them? This is all within reach using a new style of gardening called aquaponics.
