The Purpose of the GreenView Aquaponics Farm & Florida Homesteading MeetUp group is to perpetuate homesteading, permaculture practices, beekeeping and the use of aquaponics as a viable means of food production in a broad range of applications. From urban backyard hobby and gardens, to small family farms and commercial production, we hope to educate others about healthy living through homesteading using aquaponics, beekeeping, edible landscaping, permaculture practices, and holistic opportunities in addition to sharing experiences and networking together to help build a healthier and sustainable future.

Whether you are a do-it-yourself type looking for advice or want to know where to purchase components to build your own system, GreenView Aquaponics Family Farm & Apiary (http://www.gvafarm.net) is your premier source for these food growing systems and to purchase components to build your own aquaponics system, bee hives, edible garden or permaculture food forest.

All members are encouraged to ask and answer any questions as well as upload photos to show off their working aquaponics systems, bee hives and honey bees, permaculture food forests and edible gardens.
