Welcome to Idaho Aquaponics things are growing and changing here. We welcome the new groups that are being formed on other domains and wish them the very best. The fact that people have stepped up to keep things going shows the power of our ideas. I will be keeping this site open and continue to share aquaponics world changing power.
This group has many members in the Treasure Valley Nampa/Caldwell/Boise and even a few in Eastern Oergon and is growing in the Cambridge Council area too. All are welcome.
This group is for anyone who cares about what they eat. In an age of preservatives, additives, GMO vegetables and cloned meat, we decided we wanted something better and we found it in aquaponics! A combination of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (TOMATOES - lol!) this system can provide your family with fresh produce and fresh fish year around, even here in Idaho. We are newbies ourselves, so there is no need to be intimidated, come see what we are talking about!
We attempt to follow the "Dama" concept, although we readily admit our shortcomings and understand this way of living is nearly antithetical to surviving in the US economy. It is our belief that the US economy is leaving too many people hungry and without basic needs, so we are doing what we can to try something different. We do not ask for dues, but we do ask members to give as freely as they can, and receive as graciously as they can. It is not about the objects, it is about the bonds formed between our fellow humans.
