Intro to AQUAPONICS
I am very excited and grateful about this discovery. I have a friend in Florida who has been involved in this water-saving, cost-saving, non labor-intensive method of growing the purest food possible on the planet for some time. Having seen photos of the produce she is getting from her Aquaponics set up, I was convinced this is the way to regain control of our water and food supply and our health.
As Sylvia Bernstein, President of The Aquaponic Source, writes on her website:
container gardening set at waist height without weeds or back strain. It automatically waters and fertilizes itself and takes only minutes of care a day…
growing your own tilapia, perch, catfish or Koi in your backyard
doing all this while using less than a tenth of the water of dirt-based gardening.
Aquaponics systems can be as small as a simple set up that can be put in a room in an apartment or on the balcony all the way on up to large-scale Aquaponic farms.
Please watch some of these introductory videos.

Here in Israel, these wonderful people are involved in Aquaponics and provide equipment for Acquaponics from small set-ups suitable to apartments all the way on up to large-scale Aquaponic farming.
I would be delighted to be in touch with people who would be interested in a Cooperative Aquaponics adventure.
There are also Aquaponics-related profiles and groups on Facebook.
I do not work for or get any benefits whatsoever from any Aquaponics companies and am not recommending or endorsing any Aquaponics company in particular. I simply hope to get you excited and passionate about a way of managinig water and food that will return control over our lives to us, allow us to regain our health and reconnect with the source of Life.
