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

Gardening, Chickens, Fish, Hogs, Rabbits, Composting and Beer Brewing. I currently have a garden, 11 laying hens and an all grain brewing setup. My goal is to use my 2 acres I live on to produce the majority of food for myself and my family as well as some to market. (and a good pint of ale when the mood strikes. )

What gardening/farming experience do you have?

Grew up on a farm in western Oklahoma with a large garden in the 1950's & 60's. Have had backyard organic gardens off and on since.

What makes aquaponics interesting to you?

Eating fish which I love and fresh vegetables year round. Also the fact that it is a closed, symbiotic system and aligns with my goal of being as sustainable and self-sufficient as possible.


I plan to build a 20 X 48 Hoop House and set up an Aquaponics system in summer 2013. I have been researching Aquaponics for almost a year and will continue researching until I start construction. Plan is 4x8x12" flood & drain with totes for fish.
