Group Build: Learn the Basics of Small-scale Aquaponic Systems

The idea behind the group build is to give inexperienced builders the opportunity to get hands-on with building an small-scale aquaponics system and donating the system created to a local non-profit, an idea I borrowed from the Earthship Colorado gang. Aquaponics scales very easily, and starting small can help save you lots of time, money, and stress while still giving you the knowledge to sustain yourself and your family.

Parts have been gathered from various sources and will be used to create an aquaponics system for Solid State Depot, the Boulder Hackerspace, our base of operations. Hopefully we will have all the tools and supplies to at least start building a system in one afternoon. Should additional build session be needed, they will be added accordingly.

If you are a complete Noob when it comes to aquaponics, this event is for you. Experienced aquaponic builders are encouraged to come and help. If you have any supplies to bring or donate to our cause, please bring them by. 

If you would like to participate by hosting your own group build, supplying materials, and having help from our group to assemble the system, please contact Joel.

    Thanks to everyone who came out. We had a great turnout, and a lot got accomplished.

    Doesn't look like I'd be able to get there until around 3:00 at the earliest. Figure you guys will probably be more or less done by then so I'll catch you next time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
