AQUAPONICS IS REVOLUTIONIZING SUSTAINABLE HOME FARMING
ELORA, Tennessee (MMD Newswire) August 8, 2012 -- The creators of a new home-farming system say their "Aquaponics" technique is the world's most sustainable and affordable food production method, and they want to teach you everything they know.
The Do-it-yourself "MicroSystem" by partner companies Friendly Aquaponics of Hawaii and EAT ( Eco Aquaponic Training), of Tennessee costs less than $700 to build and can grow between 20-40 pounds of fruits and vegetables per month, while using a fraction of the time, space, energy and water of in-the-ground gardening. The system comes with detailed instructions and plans, and it pays for itself in about six months.
"Aquaponics helps anyone step onto the path of food freedom," said Randy Campbell, co-founder of EAT (Eco Aquaponic Training). "The food production systems we teach you to build will all will pay for themselves in just three to six months, with the money saved in store-bought groceries. With the larger systems, you could even make money by selling your extra produce!"
Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture (growing aquatic life like fish and prawns) and hydroponics (growing plants in water). By combining these technologies the Friendly Aquaponics and EAT (Eco Aquaponic Training) way, users create a vibrant natural ecosystem that will easily grow an abundance of food.
Friendly Aquaponics is the world's first certified organic aquaponics farm, located on the Island of Hawaii. The group has created dozens of innovations to simplify and refine aquaponics so that just about anyone can grow safe, nutritious, and delicious food just about anywhere in the world.
Friendly Aquaponics is also a functioning family-run farm, selling hundreds of organic vegetables per week to their local community. In addition, they delivered 400 pounds of organic lettuce mix to their local Costco for almost two years. Now, they are bringing their technology to Tennessee, in partnership with EAT (Eco Aquaponic Training).
"We want to feed our neighbors and teach folks everywhere how they can do the same thing, too," said Katie Campbell, 16, co-owner, and Randy's daughter.
The Friendly Aquaponics team developed their MicroSystem and instructional courses after their farm became overwhelmed by visitors seeking tours of the facilities and asking for more information.
Already, hundreds of students from the U.S., Canada, Europe, Latin American, Africa, and Asia have studied auquaponic farming techniques at the Hawaii headquarters of Friendly Aquaponics. The group also offers private consultations and training materials by postal mail or Internet download.
EAT's first Tennessee training will be offered in September 16-18, and is expected to sell out well in advance.
