Workshop Dec 11/12, 2010

A workshop to get some hands on AP experience expanding my 300 gallon Aquaponics system. It currently has 3, 100 gallon grow beds and I’m going to add 3 more. This system uses an Aquaponics Indexing Valve, this will allow me to have 600 gallons of grow bed without running my fish in a 300 gallon fish tank dry.

I intend to have all the parts ready to go before the event.

Day one, will be placing the new grow beds, the importance of leveling the supports and then plumbing, supply, drain, gravel guards and stand pipes. I’m sure we will start washing some gravel on day one for those who can’t attend both.

Day two, gravel washing and filling the beds. gravel washing is an important right of passage into DIY aquaponics and even the pros using the clay balls rinse the media before hooking up the system. This is your chance for initiation.
Please stop by the discussion and let me know if there is anything in particular you are interested in.

Again, December 11 and 12 2010 from 10am-4pm planning a pot luck lunch and we can discuss, answer questions and teach while we digest the lunch.

I will update this even page more as the details get nailed down. Maps and directions will come closer to the event.

    How closely related are you looking for. I will be adding blog posts daily to this web site. There are several already starting to chronicle the original construction of my Big Aquaponics System “How it all Started”
    Then there is a post about the initial construction of the 300 gallon system which the workshop will be expanding.

    Do these qualify as the kind of related articles you are interested in?

  • This is a interesting article. I have enjoyed it quite a bit. Lake Okechobee, Florida has some of the finest bass fishing in Florida that cater to retired people as well as the younger generations. If you love bass fishing this is the place to go particularly in the Winter months.

    Here is my pops famous “Mediterranean Grouper” recipe…Always rinse under cold water, then pat dry with a paper towel. Brush fillets with olive oil first, then salt, pepper and oregano lightly over the top of each fillet. Put on a piece of aluminum foil skin side down and bake at 350 for about 12 minutes depending on the thickness of each fillet. When the fish is done the skin will stay stuck to the foil and the meat will slide off. While the fish was cooking you were also boiling some spinach or other favorite greens. When the greens are done, “about 25 minutes” take them out of the boiling water. Strain thoroughly by pushing all of the water out of them using the proper kitchen utensil, be careful they are very hot. Pour olive oil over the greens. Salt, pepper and squeeze fresh lemon over the top and enjoy.

    Plumbing is not a very easy task. I tried doing some home plumbing and it resulted into quite a lot of mess. ,”`.’
