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

I am interested in systems design. My wife is the gardener, but she will be working most Saturdays for a while

What gardening/farming experience do you have?

We have a small garden patch in the side yard to grow tomatoes and peppers mostly, but would like to expand the menu to include fish and more veggies.

What makes aquaponics interesting to you?

Not only the small footprint, but the complete lack of dependence on the questionable soil available to us here makes this growing system attractive. The opportunity to grow fish in the closed loop system is very exciting to us as we are interested in becoming more self-sufficient, even while still locked in the city.


Jesse Kensinger. Have had interest in self-sustaining food processes and living since the 70's but find that it's hard to do this in the city. This process excites me because of the small footprint and simple configuration. Thanks
