System Buildout and Class

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Hi, Giovanna Hesley here. I am moving to the Armory Park area of Tucson. After the move my system will have to be reconfigured and assembled into its new position.  Currently the system houses 4 tilapia and 5 koi in an IBC tank.  Water flows from the pump sump (two mosquito eating goldfish in residence) into the IBC and then gravity feeds it to the four cattle feed tanks working as deep water rafts.  From there it gravity flows back to the pump sump. 

    James Ebeling and I intend to incorporate a radial flow clarifier and a bioreactor tank to encourage solids capture and high water quality.  James will be conducting a short class on the essentials of recirculating integrated aquaculture (aquaponics) with anyone who wants to learn while I will work on logistics and assembly. 

    Cool drinks and a light snack will be provided to anyone who wants to work. We request a small donation to help cover the cost of cookies and this meetup page.

    Address will be given out to those who RSVP.

    I'm attending but wondered if I might bring a friend? I was telling her about it and she's checking her schedule to let me know. Also I work for a bakery, may I bring some cookies for everyone?
