Hey Fishy

Not sure if you've ever posted about it but you might want to look into Black Soldier Fly. You probably know all about them.

Yep. They are awesome.

When we got all set up to be able to winter them over, I am going to order some. We are too cold for them to be native around here. For now, we make do with red wigglers, but as composters go, they are slackers. You just can't hire a good worm these days... ;)

I seen some

I seen some people have them indoors but I'm no expert. Lot of good info on line.

Get Prepared!

hey check out my system

First - great community outreach

Unfortunately due to the fickle nature of the consuming public, I think you need to refine the overall design to get high adoption rates.

I have been working on a system all year as a product design thesis
I am almost complete the full working model in stainless steel

I would love a fellow aquaponics user's feedback


the response was outstanding

We explained that what we had was designed to show how cheap a system could be put together. People LOVED that. We also had displays on sprouting / fodder feeding and permaculture, we had people waiting in line to talk to us. I love your concept, love that you are doing this. Email me if you ever want to share ideas. We are about to transition from purely education based to business, but we want to stick with the theme of "even poor people deserve to eat nutritious food."

I am excited to hear of your public acceptance

With regards to people being interested in the Aquaponics system, I generally get the same reaction that you describe.

The issue that I run into, however, is that when it comes down to waiting 12-16 weeks for a lettuce, people seem to lose interest.

On the sharing of ideas,
I have published everything I found during research or published myself on that website I linked above
Please feel free to take advantage of anything there.

And most importantly, I wish you well in your business endeavor.


A town of 30,000...

that is about the turn out that we get here. For a town of 350, that is awesome :-)

Downvotes for activism - nice.

Is it having information booths or giving away AP systems that offends people, I wonder...?

I just voted you UP

There seems to be a strong trend against 'activism' here lately.
