Book 1

Book 1 Description

Aquaponics is a revolutionary system for growing plants by fertilizing them with the waste water from fish in a sustainable closed system. A combination of the best of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponic gardening is an amazingly productive way to grow organic vegetables, greens, herbs and fruits, while providing the added benefits of fresh fish as a safe, healthy source of protein. On a larger scale, it is a key solution to mitigating food insecurity, climate change, groundwater pollution and the impacts of overfishing on our oceans.

Aquaponic Gardening is the definitive do-it-yourself home manual, focused on giving you all the tools you need to create your own aquaponic system and enjoy healthy, safe, fresh and delicious food all year round. Starting with an overview of the theory, benefits and potential of aquaponics, the book goes on to explain:

  • System location considerations and hardware components
  • The living elements — fish, plants, bacteria, and worms
  • Putting it all together — starting and maintaining a healthy system.

Aquaponics systems are completely organic. They are four to six times more productive and use 90 percent less water than conventional gardens. Other advantages include no weeds, fewer pests, and no watering, fertilizing, bending, digging, or heavy lifting – in fact, there really is no down side! Anyone interested in taking the next step towards self-sufficiency will be fascinated by this practical, accessible and well-illustrated guide.

A summary of my thoughts

It is always important to gain knowledge and wisdom from people who have been there done that. The books I recommend here are full of great reviews as they share practical and actionable steps you can do to improve your gardening.

Aquaponics itself is a quite a feat to build. If you manage to build a aquaponics system to be self sustainable, it is a great feat on its own. There are many ways, tips and tricks I have a collection of aquaponics videos from my YouTube channel. You can click the link below to find out more.

You can also head over to my Youtube channel at link below

for more videos on aquaponics. I have a ton of content that will enrich your experience and knowledge. They have successfully build up a aquaponics system and they share their practical knowledge with you. I would suggest that you diversify your learning experiences so that you increase  your success rate of building up a really good and powerful aquaponics system.

I wish you all the best to your gardening journey. Perhaps in the future, there may be food shortages and it is important to be self sustainable. Maybe everybody have to grow their own food in their homes and it is a must study topic on horticulture in schools. So equip  yourself today with experience and knowledge to prepare for the future circumstances.

Sincerely for You
