How many times did you not want to grow your own vegetables, without chemicals or preservatives, just organic food that you, your children and your entire family can eat safely? How many times did you not think for purchasing a land that will offer you the organic crops you long for? How many times did you not wish to go out and pick your veggies without thinking of their rising price? If for all of these questions the answer is “many” then read on and find out how all you wishes may come true.
So, let’s start with the beginning. The first invention which made gardening far easier was hydroponics, which involved growing your veggies in special pots with water. However, the hydroponic system involves using many chemicals and fertilizers, thus the plants growing in there are not quite organic. Yet, the use of fertilizers and chemical substances is not necessary when building your aquaponic system.
Aquaponics or aquaponic farming involves growing fish and plants in a natural and useful interdependence. So, you grow fish in a normal fish tank and after a certain period you “plant” the seeds. Then you just take care of the fish and the plants will grow and develop naturally without any further help from you.
