This group was created to help spread the knowledge of aquaponics, which is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil). By raising food this way, gardeners can produce the highest quality herbs and vegetables with the lowest inputs of labor, water, and fertilizer. The efficiency and productivity of the system and its ease of operation make it the perfect urban garden.

The group will meet to discuss aquaponics, to go see existing aquaponic facilities, and to build aquaponic systems in hands-on workshops.

There are many different variations of aquaponic systems, and the group will spend time learning the pros and cons of each type of system so members will be able to decide which is best for them (if any).

The history of aquaponics will be covered at some length, not only as an interesting historical perspective, but to allow the members to fully grasp the natural progression in agricultural practices that are entwined in the various threads of the aquaponic story.

    "I just built my first aquaponic system. It's on the small side, but a lot of fun for my first trial. I want to make the jump to a greenhouse one day, but I figured this would be a good place to start."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
