Imagine a system that allows you to grow your meat and vegetables all at the same time! Meet aquaponics, a self-sustaining system in which you combine aquaculture (fish) with hydroponics (growing plants in water).
On Saturday, June 18th I participated in a day-long workshop to learn about the theory of aquaponics as well as help to build a system from scratch. The course was part of The Human Path’s homesteading and permaculture courses, and was taught by Dr. Paul Range and Gloria Haswell.
