My name is Aaron Blount. I currently have a small system running in my back yard that I built April 2022. It’s been going pretty great, except for the mess up with the plumbing on my yard hose which is hooked into the system after the water softener, which has led to salt accumulation. (I will be working on rerouting the yard system to tie in in front of the softener system.
That said, I just started my first year of Graduate School at NMSU with my focus in Aquaponics. I hope to help develop an Aquaponics Program at the college in conjunction with building my own farm/aquaponics greenhouse outside of town. I have a long, difficult road ahead, but I’m sure I can succeed. And if I can’t get the college to get a program together, I hope to at least start working with local schools Ag groups to show them how aquaponics works and spark more interest in our area that way.
