Charlie Dare's insight:

In isolated regions aquaponics has a place in permanant community gardeningThis one is ajacent to a school and trailer park. Roads in cut off by snow at times.The concept is pretty simple: planners recreate a forest ecosystem with edible plants and trees in a public space. Then, in a deviation from most community garden models, they open it up and allow people to forage for food for free.

Charlie Dare's insight:

Chicken waste used by one farm not another They are simply two kinds of sustainability, one focusing on the maximization of profits and minimization of space used, and the other maximizing the impact on the ecosystem. There is not a good way to tell which is more effective, because the percentage of farms that use the latter method is very small. But he is right, it does taste better!

I recommend looking at these videos before spending much on Aquaponics even if you,ve done a course no body knows it all .Experienced growers get problems that they haven't had before Tomatoes with blight, changing to another fish species like trout that likes a high flow rate of cold aerated water after growing rubbish fish like Tilapia because like European Carp lives in very poor warm low oxygenated water..Latitude, weather influence what is a good species to grow, in glass house, under cover no two sites are exactly the same but crops generally are successful ~

Understanding Iron in Aquaponics - Vertical Food Blog

Understanding Iron in Aquaponics - Vertical Food Blog | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
By mass, iron is the most plentiful element on the planet, & one of the oldest metals used by humanity. Learn the specifics about iron in aquaponics.
Charlie Dare's insight:

Many soils actually do have iron deficiencies which are treated with chelated iron. It has less to do with the humus and more to do with the source material (decaying rock and minerals in soil, and fish feed in aquaponic systems). Sometimes iron is very deficient in nature as well. In these scenarios, plants do some pretty amazing things to get iron into their systems (often times there’s plenty of iron, just not soluble iron). So, in the absence of these plants or the presence of heavy iron consumers, we have to take things into our own hands and add iron.http://www.amazon.com/Sequestrene-Iron-Chelate-330-Fe/dp/B0012BGZ9G
