Aquaponic technology is a sustainable agriculture system that uses fish waste as a source of nutrients to feed the plants, while the plants support a beneficial bacteria that acts as a natural bio filter to keep the water clean for the fish. Both fish and vegetables grow simultaneously in a symbiotic relationship for healthy food production.
The Aquaponic Source is a new retail store and education center based in Longmont, Colorado that specializes in aquaponics. The center focuses on gardening technology. The Aquaponic Source also hosts an informational website that is rich with video content and book recommendations for beginners or advanced alike. Website visitors will also find a resource rich blog to answer the common questions. As well as community pages for networking and local collaboration.
Many people have been turning to aquaponics for its environmentally friendly gardening in urban and suburban environments. Personal Aquaponic systems can be set up in backyards, basements, on balconies, or in classroom.
