What are you interested in, hobby gardening, self sufficiency gardening, community gardening or commercial farming (or all of these)?

All of the above but especially hobby and self sufficiency gardening. We do regular gardening, raised bed gardening and now I am pursuing Aquaponics.

What gardening/farming experience do you have?

I was born and raised in the country and worked for all the farmers in the area. I went on to be an engineer but my roots never left me. My wife and I garden as a hobby and thus enjoy the fruits of our labor.

What makes aquaponics interesting to you?

I am a robotics engineer. I like to build closed loop systems. Aquaponics is a complete ecosystem that intrigues me. I like the idea of having vegetables all year round.


My name is Eric, I am an electronics engineer that loves to come home to the simpler things in life. I have 4 children, grown and moved away. Now it is my wife and I. We've been married 38 years and love gardening together.

What Eric B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great. I'm glad to see a support group on this topic.
