PRLog - March 22, 2012 - WANTAGH, N.Y. -- California— In conjunction with the UN’s World Water Day, March 22, 2012, Tom Cooley has published two aquaponics documents. Tom is a social media environmental activist who has had an interest in sustainable methods of growing food for many years. When he discovered Growing Power's groundbreaking innovations in urban farming using aquaponics, he immediately recognized aquaponics' potential to feed the world. He wrote these documents in an effort to inform more people about aquaponics.
The documents attempt to expand the ability of aquaponics systems to assist people in developing countries to feed themselves sustainably. Aside from necessary initial start up imports such as seeds, fish, spirulina culture, etc. the goal is to create systems which can be constructed and repaired using locally available materials.
The primary intent of the published document is to help design sustainable high yield food growing systems for tropical and subtropical areas of the world where water is relatively scarce and electricity is not available. Urban aquaponic systems and third world systems where water is relatively abundant have been conceptualized previously. This model endeavors to assist people in areas of water scarcity.

“With the growing demand for organic food production, more and more people are looking at sustainable models that will produce a high yield without necessarily having to farm a large acreage,” said June Stoyer, Executive Producer of The Organic View Radio show.
