At this 2 hour meetup you will get to examine four different functioning aquaponic systems made following two different designs, Raft and Fill-&-Drain.
1-A Friendly Aquaponics Micro, deep-water, 64 square foot, raft system (see one here) which is 15 months old.
2-A Murray Hallam three bed gravel flood and drain system, which is 14 months old.
3-A dry demo 150 gallon IBC aquaponic system that uses a super simple timed flood & drain setup will be available to view. It is a good first backyard or medium sized patio system and easy enough for a DIY beginner to build.
4-A simple one barrel "Herb" garden system
Bob Jordan's got a great website with lots of pictures of his systems at http://aquaponicfun.com/
A wealth of valuable experience will be on tap to save you time and money on your build. This will not be a construction session, but an information session with time to take pictures and get an idea how any or all of these systems might work for you in your situation.
Come join the fun!
If you RSVP yes, please un RSVP if you change your mind, so we can better prepare.
