So you might have been around long enough to have heard me speak about Aquaponics from the “I really don’t have a clue what this is” perspective. Â To the “I think maybe, if we could just perfectly, make this to kind of…” perspective. Â And now, I am in the understanding and hopeful place, which will lead to the “I am tweaking the output to insure that” phase.
Basically, it is a simple concept. Â Fish poop. Â That poop is incredible fertilizer, in that all of the minerals necessary for food growth are present when that poop is broken down in the nitrogen cycle. Â So basically, if you were to stick the roots of your favorite veges in the water of a fish pond, and if you were to pull them out just often enough that they could absorb nutrients and water, and oxygen, then they would become bountiful plants.
Aquaponics does just that. Â So when you watch this video, you should ask the question – “Is it worth the hassle”?
So the answer is, yes! Â Now, my system is a lot more effort to create than what we will be teaching you how to create, but the hassle and extra expense do two things that you might want.
- Improve your cleanliness of your food, allowing organic to be truly achievable at every level.
- Give you permanence to your system, so that you can produce a garden full of plants all year round (winter too), as long as you like, with minimal maintenance to your system.
