So as we continue to work through questions of “how best to” and “what if this breaks” in my backyard. Â We are getting closer and closer to a final product. Â Our goal is to take this information, and provide solutions for aquaponics gardens in back yard settings. Â If you are new to this, aquaponics is the merger of hydroponics with aquaculture.
Basically a pond of fish, creating waste, which is then pumped into a garden of vegetables growing in a clean non-dirt medium (rock works great), then re-capturing the filtered water to return to the fish pond. The water provides all the nutrient that the plants need to grow, and the plants provide all the cleanliness that the fish need to live. Pretty cool!
WHEN YOU WATCH THE VIDEO… it uploaded poorly, so you will want to kill your sound right at the fade out/fade in, otherwise you’ll be annoyed by a loop of me saying “another update, another update, another update”!!
