But wait...! Plants eat Ammonia, Algae, Minerals and Nitrates! Everything that fish produce naturally! What if you connect the two together? This is where the magic of Aquaponics comes in!

Do you want to learn how to start growing organic vegetables, fruits, herbs and even raising fish?If yes, then keep reading... The secret to successful aquaponics is being able to combine the art of hydroponics and aquaculture. Aqua-Culture is the process of growing fish in a tank... and it has one big problem... Fish produce Ammonia, Algae, Minerals, and all kinds of other by-products that need to be constantly filtered. But wait...! Plants eat Ammonia, Algae, Minerals and Nitrates! Everything that fish produce naturally! What if you connect the two together? This is where the magic of aqua-ponics comes in!... If you connect the fish-tank water to the water of the hydroponics system... your plants get an automatic food supply of almost everything they need to grow from the fish water... and in turn... the plants filter the water for the fish. It's a win/win/win situation for everyone! In hydroponics, much of the work is done by both the water, as well as the circulation of oxygen that reaches the roots of the plants being grown. One of the biggest differences between the two forms of gardening or farming is that with hydroponics, the nutrient system feeding the plants is already pre-mixed. This mixture contains all the nutrients needed in the water. The plants make use of all of the nutrients for them to grow to their maximum capacity. Getting this nutrient mix correct can take loads of practice and time. It can take trial and error resulting in plants suffering from root rot, which is extremely common in hydroponics. The best part is that inside this guide you'll find everything you need to make your own aquaponics system. You can do this too, it's easy, and you don't need any experience. You can do this on a budget, and build a mini-home system. This book contains: Step by step instructions anyone can do All the critical pieces to grow plant twice as fast like never before. You won't believe your eyes! The 3 types of aquaponic systems that you have to focus on if you want your plants to grow twice as fast Design and construction of your aquaponic system without spending a good deal of money The plants: deciding what to grow and when to grow it 3 important ways to manage your plants Understanding the nutrient cycle before you should get your system going Identifying the best fish for aquaponics 10 common mistakes in aquaponics and how to avoid them Maintenance and pest prevention A summarized step-by-step guide to set up an aquaponic system ...And so much more!

Two Percent Solutions for the Planet profiles fifty innovative practices that soak up carbon dioxide in soils, reduce energy use, sustainably intensify food production, and increase water quality. The “two percent” refers to: the amount of new carbon in the soil needed to reap a wide variety of ecological and economic benefits; the percentage of the nation’s population who are farmers and ranchers; and the low financial cost (in terms of GDP) needed to get this work done. As White explained in Grass, Soil, Hope, a highly efficient carbon cycle captures, stores, releases, and recaptures biochemical energy, mitigating climate change, increasing water storage capacities in soil, and making green plants grow. Best of all, we don’t have to invent anything new—a wide variety of innovative ideas and methods that put carbon back into the soil have been field-tested and proven to be practical and profitable. They’re mostly low-tech, too, relying on natural resources such as sunlight, green plants, animals, compost, beavers, creeks, and more. In Two Percent Solutions for the Planet, White expands what he calls the “regenerative toolbox,” to include holistic grazing, edible forests, biochar, weed-eating livestock, food co-ops, keyline plowing, restoration agriculture, bioenergy, aquaponics, animal power, Farm Hack, bees, bears, wildlife corridors, rainwater harvesting, native seeds, and various other projects from across the United States, as well as in Canada, Europe, and Australia. These short, engaging success stories will help readers connect the dots between diverse, exciting, and pragmatic practices, and inspire them to dig deeper into each individual story and concept, energized by the news that solutions do exist.

Hydroponics (Latin for "working water") is the practice of growing flowers or edible plants using water instead of soil. When people think of hydroponics they usually envision huge greenhouse-type commercial enterprises with lab-coated scientists wandering about making adjustments. But hydroponics is actually very simple and a growing number of people are gardening and farming in their homes using hydroponics. Some of these farmers turned their hobby of hydroponic farming into profitable enterprises.

Publisher: Speedy Publishing LLC
Vertical gardening is the process of gardening that is done vertically or upward. While the traditional gardening process is gardening with plots on the ground, vertical gardening is a different approach to gardening as it aims to plant crops in a vertical position or standing position. This can either be done through hanging plots or with frameworks as long as plants are not planted on the ground like in traditional gardening. There are several advantages of vertical gardening. One, vertical gardening is a great space saver. Since your garden is positioned vertically, it does not take up too much space in your backyard, giving room to more plants to be planted. Two, vertical gardening is a very flexible type of gardening because it allows you to plant or to build a garden even in an area with limited space. For instance, if you are only gardening on your rooftop or you only a have a very small backyard, it is possible for you to plant many crops through vertical gardening even with that limited space you have. If you want to build a vertical garden, there are several things you need to be aware of. First, you need to how to know how to build one, you need to know how to prepare the soil for a vertical garden, you need to know how to maintain your vertical garden, and you need to know how to control pests and keep them from destroying your plants. This way, the time, money and effort you invested in building this garden won't be in vain. This book will discuss and reveal some of these helpful vertical gardening tips you need.

Author: Shawn Jadrnicek
Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing
The Bio-Integrated Farm is a twenty-first-century manual for managing nature’s resources. This groundbreaking book brings “system farming” and permaculture to a whole new level. Author Shawn Jadrnicek presents new insights into permaculture, moving beyond the philosophical foundation to practical advanced designs based on a functional analysis. Holding his designs to a higher standard, Jadrnicek’s components serve at least seven functions (classical permaculture theory only seeks at least two functions). With every additional function a component performs, the design becomes more advanced and saves more energy. A bio-integrated greenhouse, for example, doesn’t just extend the season for growing vegetables; it also serves as a rainwater collector, a pond site, an aquaponics system, and a heat generator. Jadrnicek’s prevalent theme is using water to do the work. Although applicable in many climates, his designs are particularly important for areas coping with water scarcity. Jadrnicek focuses on his experience as farm manager at the Clemson University Student Organic Farm and at his residence in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. These locations lie at the cooler northern edge of a humid subtropical climate that extends west to the middle of Texas and north along the coast to New Jersey. He has created permaculture patterns ranging from raising transplants and field design to freshwater prawn production and composting. These patterns have simplified the operation of the 125-share CSA farm while reducing reliance on outside resources. In less time than it takes to mow his two-acre homestead, Jadrnicek is building a you-pick fruit farm using permaculture patterns. His landscape requires only the labor of harvesting, and the only outside input he buys is a small amount of chicken feed. By carefully engaging the free forces of nature—water, wind, sunlight, convection, gravity, and decomposition—Jadrnicek creates sustenance without maintenance and transforms waste into valuable farm resources. The Bio-Integrated Farm offers in-depth information about designing and building a wide range of bio-integrated projects including reflecting ponds, water-storage ponds, multipurpose basins, greenhouses, compost heat extraction, pastured chicken systems, aquaculture, hydroponics, hydronic heating, water filtration and aeration, cover cropping, and innovative rainwater-harvesting systems that supply water for drip irrigation and flushing toilets.
