This is my video Blog and I invite you to peek in and see how my family and I are learning to be green; physically, mentally, and spiritually. Come share in our journey of discovery! Interested in aquaponics? Go here to grow up to 10 times the plants, in half the time, while the “fish” do all the work! -begin ad-http://thelocalwebsolution.com/aquaponics4you_gl.html -End of Ad There is a better way out there and I am going to find it.
While thinking about the best over all way to provide food locally and reduce our carbon footprint. We have chosen to make aquaponics a central part of our greener life and as a result our focus as of late has been to expand our Aquaponics Systems.
We constructed an outdoor pond that holds around 1500 gallons of water. In addition to the pond we have installed a 32 foot by 12 1/2 foot gravel grow bed that has a volume of 2,742 gallons. This bed is large enough to feed up to 6 people if planted to capacity.
Well.. I think we are just a little greener now..
Greener physically because, I have found a way to eat only food produced on site saving fossil fuel. Greener mentally, as I will be requiring less income and that lifts a lot of stress and that further sets in my mind the importance of being Green.
