Aquaponics - A Breakthrough!

After some delays and several obstacles, our hard working team, with the can-do, must-do and will-do attitude have gone above and beyond the call of being great dudes and here we are; finally seeing the completion of the much hyped, eagerly anticipated PermaPatch aquaculture system!

The day began slowly due to a comprehensive and robust discussion regarding such weighty subjects as the weather, measurements and positioning, all important parameters worthy of intense debate when embarking upon these complex tasks.

Making progress... Jo, Colin and Ivan

The A-team was joined today by Jo's nephew, Ivan who was visiting all the way from WA. Thanks to Ivan for coming along, it was nice to have some agreeable help!

So finally......         

THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!!!!!

This aquaponics table can support up to 120 plants, with the water flowing through the trays and back to the fish tank... a virtuous circle indeed. The plants are fed by the nitrogen from the fish waste and in turn the water is oxygenated, ad infinitum. :)

Do visit the garden soon to marvel at this rather incredible development.
