Aquaponic Gardening: A Step by Step Guide to Growing Fish and Vegetables Together (Case of 20)
More About the Aquaponic Gardening: A Step by Step Guide to Growing Fish and Vegetables Together (Case of 20):
Aquaponics is a revolutionary system for growing plants by fertilizing them with the waste water from fish in a sustainable closed system. Designed as a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponic gardening is an amazingly productive way to grow organic vegetables, greens, herbs, and fruits, while providing the added benefits of fresh fish as a safe, healthy source of protein. On a larger scale, it is a key solution to mitigating food insecurity, climate change, groundwater pollution, and the impacts of overfishing on our oceans.
Aquaponic Gardening is the definitive do-it-yourself home manual, focused on giving you all the tools you need to create your own aquaponic system and enjoy healthy, safe, fresh, and delicious food all year round. Starting with an overview of the theory, benefits, and potential of aquaponics, the book goes on to explain:
- System location considerations and hardware components
- The living elements—fish, plants, bacteria, and worms
- Putting it all together—starting and maintaining a healthy system
This accessible book is also infused with humor and warmth; using quotes, stories, and images from actual aquaponic gardeners throughout.
