Easy DIY Aquaponics

What Is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is the process that combines Aquaculture, which is raising fish, with Hydroponics, which is growing plants without soil.  The basis of the aquaponics system uses the waste that’s produced by the fish to nourish the plants in the grow beds.  The water is pumped from the fish tank up into the beds where the plants are located.  Then the water, which is now purified,  is funneled back into the fish tank where the cycle begins again.

AquaponicsMaintaining an aquaponics system is the best way to become food independent.   If you are undecided about whether or not you should take on this endeavor, think about the instability of the economy, the high gas prices, and the ongoing food shortages that are resulting in much higher food prices.   By using aquaponics you will never again have to wonder how you will feed your family.

If that’s not enough, consider the pesticide exposure your family will experience when eating most commercially grown food.   Pesticides have been linked to many different illness, including cancer, Parkinson’s, birth defects, infertility and many, many more.  Pesticide residue can stay in your food even if you have washed them and peeled them.

Even with the FDA guidelines that are now in place, it takes a very long time for the pesticides that were used years ago to break down,  and are still to this day present in the soil in which our current supply of food is being grown.   With each passing year the problem only grows because now the chemicals have only been compounded in the soil  creating multiple toxic chemical combinations in the soil in which the foods we are eating are being grown.

Do You Know What Genetically Modified Foods Are And How They Could Harm You And Your Family?

GMO stands for genetically modified organism. GMO’s and are foods that have been genetically modified and they’re being used with almost no research into their effects on our bodies even though they have killed animals. That’s a very scary thought!

There is growing evidence about the dangers from using GMO’s. GMO’s are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from various types of bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. This does not naturally happen in nature. These engineered GMO’s are designed specifically to withstand the direct application of herbicide to produce an insecticide that are supposed to produce an increased yield, be drought tolerant and offer enhanced nutrition. However, despite the biotech industry promises none of these things have occurred. Using GMO’s without testing and without DIY Aquaponicsproperly informing consumers of the growing health and environmental dangers, tramples all over our rights as consumers.

OK enough about why you should get into aquaponics. There are so many benefits that come with having an aquaponic garden. With an aquaponic garden, you will not have the usual gardening annoyances such as bending over, weeding, cultivating dirt or having to manually water your garden. And an aquaponics system uses much less water because the water is constantly being recycled.
