Hello all......

This is my first post and thought I would tell you a little about what I do to help the environment.....

I have been dirt gardening off and on for 30+ years, but not that I'm getting closer to retirement age, I have looked for alternatives to the basic poisoning of our ground water through the use of man made chemicals... I also wanted to cut my use of water to grow my vegetables.

I looked at hydroponics, but again more chemicals and the discharge of water between cycles.. so I found Aquaponics.....

Aquaponics allows me to grow 100% chemical and pesticide free vegetables in an eco-friendly recirculatory system that uses 90% less water then a standard dirt garden, while harvesting the same amount of produce...

Right now I am reliant on the grid to run my water pump and air pump, but I hope to some day take my three aquaponics systems of the grid and run them exclusively via wind and solar, with battery for night time running (when I can afford it)

so this is what I do....

have a good one
