We use the Most Sustainable form of Agriculture on the Planet - Join us in Growing Organic Foods with Fewer Resources.
Jim Hall's insight:

My friends at The Farming Fish are almost to their goal. As the 2nd Organic Aquaponics farm in the U.S.A. It would not take much to hit their goal with a few more donations. Their close the $40,000 and need $42,000 to actually get the project money. Personally I spent time there and believe it is a worthwhile investment, if for no other reason than to see how alternative farming in extreme weather is possible and can help feed out planet. They are donating produce throughout the winter to foodbanks based on donations. So your money works two ways!

Rock Field Farms | Southern Oregon Magazine

Rock Field Farms | Southern Oregon Magazine | Aquaponics World View | Scoop.it
When Kreg Boudro wants to feed his spinach, he throws a cup of pellets into a tank full of tilapia. Hundreds of fish churn to the surface, pale sides flashing in the dim light of the shed. “They’re always moving,” says Kreg. “The constant motion makes sure their waste stays suspended.” He and wife Angie own Rock Field Farms, the first aquaponic farm in Jackson County. As in hydroponic farming, plants grow without soil; instead, roots feed directly into nutrient-rich water. What distinguishes aquaponics is the symbiotic relationship between fish and plants.

Jim Hall's insight:
From my experience, like many others, these systems are esthetic, but don't produce much in the way of plants, the idea of fish being an alternate source of protein is substituted for ornamental fish and the structure require timers and electric pumps to operate, as opposed to the use of air pumps to move water at a lower cost, which is less likely to plug up and burn out and produce a realistic amount of food as a backyard system that uses food fish, more grow area and cost efficient air pump for aeration and water movement.
