Do you know what happened to the thread you started about aquaponics starting to get real? I wanted to read the comments but it seems to have been deleted??

Hi Dr. Brooks.  I just noticed we never did set a time!  I was just talking to Peter Condon, the Program Director for Urban Horticulture at MCC, and your name came up.  I asked if they offered any AP courses and he said he had a call placed to you to see about setting something up.  I told him he had the right man for the job!  I just enrolled in the program and hope you two can work something out for an AP class. As far as Valley View, I would still love to bring my girls by to see your garden. Are tours still available?

@ Dr. George B. Brooks, Jr. - Outstanding article!  Thank you. I am now thinking that this approach would deplete the nutrients needed by the grow beds.

Did we set up a time?

Hi Dr. Brooks!  I am interested in seeing the raft system you set up at Valley View.  Is it available for public viewing?  If so, when and where?  I am the garden club sponsor at my elementary school and I am always looking for new garden ideas to implement at our school. Would it be possible to bring my girls to see the system as well.  Thanks for your time.

Welcome George,

 

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.

 

A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

 

Please add a profile image, participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

 

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you...especially since you are generally a nice guy - LOL.

 

Sylvia
