Networking, info-sharing and forward momentum.
Net Search. I was organizing an Aquaculture meetup to network around food-fish growing locally, just as Anne was organizing this meetup. I decided the two interests were very closely interrelated and we could probably make more progress working together to organize this community. So I deferred to her great leadership and now support her, as a co-organizer of this rapidly growing Aquaponics Meetup.
I have had several simple prototype systems, and still do. Now we are designing and preparing to build a large indoor recirculating water system focused on maximum production of healthy fish (tilapia) for local eating.
Built one of the very first passive solar houses in Portland way back in the day when rainwater barrels were illegal.Founded Seven Years of Plenty...a growing movement to feed the hungry and root out the causes of poverty. Working on Aquaculture now.
