• Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Kits

    Barrel kits will be available at all but the Commercial classes. You can come to an introduction to Aquaponics or one of the “build” class and leave with a kit ready to assemble, just add the pump, controls of your choice, and some fish, to have a system ready to grow


    55 gallon plastic barrels are available for $25 each. You may be able to find them cheaper but make sure they are food grade. Some of our barrels do not have the 2 plugs with them, which you will need to build the One Barrel Aquaponic System. You will not need the plugs if you build a Travis Hugley Barrel-ponics system.


    Raft way liner is available for $1/sq ft and comes in 12’ minimum width. So the minimum quantity is 12’x1’ for $12. Just tell us how long a piece you need.


    Supplies are available at most meetings.

    Email us if you would like to make sure we will have what you want and tell us which meeting you will attend to pick up your supplies.

  • Anita Wilson

    Would like to see if this system could possibly work for me. I am a mother and I work so I don't have a lot of time left over for gardening but I have heard that this system should only take 20 min a day to maintain.
