The Aquaponic Source

About Us

Since 2009 Tawnya and JD Sawyer have been fully dedicated to practicing and teaching aquaponics. Through their business Colorado Aquaponics they have built and operated three community focused Flourish Farms aquaponic greenhouses  – 3,000sq ft in Arvada, at the GrowHaus (3,000sq ft) and  Dahlia Campus for Health and Wellbeing (5,000sq ft).

They purchased The Aquaponic Source in 2015 to further provide a wide range of products, kit aquaponic systems, design and consulting services and various levels of training.

Our wonderful team of aquaponic experts loves to engage, inspire and empower home hobbiest, community leaders, faith based organizations, schools and farmers everyday.
