In the brewing method, compost/castings are placed into a container of circulated and aerated water (via an air bubbler or similar system) typically with other nutrients. The circulated water extracts the microbiology and the microbes are in an abundance of both oxygen and nutrient to feed upon. In this method, colonies of microbes are brewed in exponential numbers, a colony of bacteria for instance can double in population every 20 minutes. Aerobic brewing takes longer than basic extraction with common brewing times of 12 to 24 hours. Brewing time is very dependent on water temperature with warmer water creating faster brews. Aerobically brewed teas have much higher microbe population densities than extracted teas and for this reason are the tea of choice.

This sounds like a great idea for creating an even richer worm tea.

Meet America's Urban Farm Pioneer - Care2.com (blog) | Aquaponics Education | Scoop.it

Meet America's Urban Farm Pioneer, Will Allen.  He is one of the pioneers of the urban food movement who is revolutionizing the way local communities grow and consume healthy, fresh and sustainable food.  

 

His organization, Growing Power, has gone from being a two-acre plot in the shadows of Milwaukee’s largest housing project to a multi-city, multi-community-farm operation that produces more than forty tons of fresh produce a year and teaches countless students and adults how to become a new generation of urban farmers.

 

He spoke with TakePart about his remarkable story, his vision for reshaping our most disadvantaged communities, and his new book “The Good Food Revolution,” which hit store shelves this week.

Version 2.0 Backyard Aquaponics Design Tool | Aquaponics Education | Scoop.it

At Aquaponic Solutions we have updated our domestic aquaponic system design calculator to Version 2.0 for all those people who wish to design and build their own backyard/hobby/domestic media bed aquaponic systems. This model allows you to size the media bed (gravel bed) of your system based on important requirements: the fish feed to plant use ratio requirement (we use a modified UVI ratio model for this) and the solids mineralisation requirement (to make sure that solids that enter the gravel bed are broken down and mineralised).
