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 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
Aquaponics systems are completely organic. They are four to six times more productive and use ninety percent less water than conventional gardens. Other advantages include no weeds, fewer pests, and no watering, fertilizing, bending, digging, or heavy lifting.
Anyone interested in taking the next step towards self-sufficiency will be fascinated by this uniquely practical, accessible, and well-illustrated guide that helps you do it all – failure is not an option!
