Aquaponic Gardening: Growing Fish and Vegetables Together

Welcome to Aquaponic Gardening and the fascinating marriage of hydroponics (growing plants without soil) and aquaculture (growing fish in captivity).  This course is based on my book, "Aquaponic Gardening: A Step by Step Guide to Growing Fish and Vegetables Together " and is designed to be easy to follow, comprehensive, and fun.  

Most of the lectures in this Aquaponic Tutorial are what is called a Video / Presentation Mashup at Udemy.  What that means is that you will see a video of myself or Alan (my husband and partner) talking and demonstrating on the left, and PowerPoint slides on the right with details to keep the concepts straight. But you don't need to do anything - the slides will just appear at the correct time! 

At the end of this aquaponic gardening course there is a series of articles and blog posts that I've written that I think are particularly relevant to new aquaponic gardeners who are smitten with this growing technique (and I hope that is you!) and want to dive deeper.  The first article is called the "Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb" and it is a summary list of many of the concepts, principles and ratios that are elaborated on in the course.

The lectures end with some handy tracking sheets and a list of links to many of the products that are shown in the course.  Some other resources that will prove useful as you embark on your aquaponic journey are...

·  The Aquaponic Source - our company site and shopping site for all your aquaponic gardening needs

·  The Aquaponic Gardening Community - a thriving online community of gardeners just like you who help each other learn and grow

·  Aquaponic Gardening Book

·  Aquaponics Association - a wonderful resource for promoting aquaponics.  They also put on the annual Aquaponics Association Conference.

The project also featured on various international and national news platforms such as The Times of India, The Hindu, Punjab Kesari,Dainik Jagran, Better India, Hortidaily etc.

The lectures in this tutorial are in the form of Audio/Presentation mashup. What that means is that you will see a video of power point slides with my voice over. You don’t have to do anything – the slides will appear at the right time with right concepts.

The course will provide you with basic understanding in following topics and encourage you to innovate and build your own system:

- Introduction to aquaponics

- Water Chemistry

- Aquaponic components

- Design of fish tank, mechanical filter, biofilter, sump and hydroponic systems

- Management of farm and troubleshoot of problems and solutions.

The lectures will end with some handy literature and useful resources as you embark on an aquaponic journey.

Aquaponics is a sustainable method of raising both fish and vegetables. It is popular with individuals, entrepreneurs, educators, missions and governments. Furthermore. with this type of indoor farming, you grow substantially more food with less water, land and labor than traditional agriculture. Aquaponics is a form of agriculture that combines raising fish in tanks ( recirculating aquaculture) with soil less plant culture ( hydroponics). In aquaponics. the nutrients - rich water from raising fish provides a natural fertilizer for the plants and the plants help to purify the water of the fish. Aquaponics, can be used to sustainably raise fresh fish and vegetables for a family, to fee a village or to generate profit in a commercial farming venture, year round, in any climate. Aquaponics is a great example of year round indoor farming. It can be done anywhere. providing fresh local food that is free of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. It is, easy and fresh. Commercially, aquaponics is a rapidly growing industry as entrepreneurs realize that aquaponics and controlled environment agriculture can provide high quality, locally -grown fresh food on a year round basis. Large commercial aquaponic farms are providing fresh food to grocery store chains, hospitals and institutions.

Aquaponics is a completely natural process that mimics all lakes, ponds, rivers and waterways on earth. The only input into an aquaponics system is fish food. The fish eat the food and excrete waste, which is converted by beneficial bacteria to nutrients that the plant use. In consuming these nutrients, the plant help to purify the water. You cannot use herbicides, pesticides or other harsh chemicals in an aquaponics system, making the fish and plants healthful and safe to eat.
