Aquaponics is a symbiotic, organic growing system that can generate hardy produce and edible fish at the same time.

The fish water is recycled through the growing bed and back to the fish tank. The plants are fed by the waste products of the fish and then clean the water [with a little help from the friendly bacteria] before it is returned to the tank.

There is no soil involved: The growing medium is usually small gravel/pebble/rock or the plants are grown in floating containers on the surface of the pool.

Have added 5 videos on this subject, so that interested parties could see a wider range of options about how this organic food system works: They provide a variety of examples of systems- from backyard to commercial operations, which employ different produce and growing mediums.

Permaculture and Water Collection Systems

DID YOU KNOW THAT: An inch of rain on an acre of ground deposits 27,000 gallons of water....Was fortunate enough to tour Richard Herman's OPERATION and see, first hand, how he collects massive amounts of rainwater on his land. Got it on tape and the video has been posted for your edification. Your comments are welcome.

Hi Dale. Wish I could've made it to Harvest Dreams on Saturday. Are you going to post the video on this site for us to see?

What a serendipitous time for us to become friends. With your interest in making videos around the local food movement.  I am hosting an event for the Food & Water Watch organization April 16th.


 "Sowing the Seeds of a Fair Farm Bill" event on Saturday, April 16th, 2011. Good food is going to come from the ground up — starting with your community.

The main objective is:

1) Bring together people in your community to raise awareness about our food system, and the need for good local food in your community.

2) Take action to get the attention of your elected officials, and ask them to take a stand for a Fair Farm Bill that will support good food

Seems like a perfect time for your video and my event to maybe get together. What do you think??

I just saw your video on permaculture. Your role as videographer is very important and your style of filming allows people and what they know to shine. Thanks for sharing it. - Char Milliman

Thanks for the friend invite. My friend at work told me about this site, I've not had a chance to really check it out yet. I put "trying" to grow things under my profile, "trying" being the operative word there...Moved down from Mich in 93 and had no idea we'd need a pick-ax to get anything planted! We've got about 5 acres north of Spfld, and are working on a raised bed garden, it's been challenging, but still working on it. Got a bumper crop of jalapenos this year, tho :) We've bought some laying hens this spring, (large fully enclosed pen & henhouse-can't free range, they'll just be some other critter's meal). Hope to add a few more in next spring, keep the flock cycled, maybe in the future can trade some nice eggs for some loads of manure to help our RB Garden (god knows it needs all the help it can get!).

Dale, Thank you so much for the time you put into video taping the News Conference. Those that couldn't attend can now see what a success it was. You are very much appreciated!!! Thank you. Donna
