Tell me all the cool things you're doing with aquaponics!

Hi Everyone,

I’m writing the last blog post for my Open Think series about aquaponics, found here: Danielle Maitland

I’d like to include as many examples as possible of how people are using aquaponics for community/education/research/commercial pursuits.

If you’d like to be included, please respond to this post with a sentence or two explaining what you’re doing, and a link to your website or a relevant news article. I’ll try to include as many examples as I can fit.


Hi Danielle! What is your deadline for people to respond to this post?

If you think it fits, I am developing a patented biodegradable plant substrate that improves water quality and supplements iron with natural chelators instead of synthetic chelators like EDTA and DTPA.

I’d love to hear more about this! We spend a ton on chelated iron and I’d much prefer a more sustainable/organic alternative. We have 2 small commercial systems if you’re looking to do trials at scale, I’d be interested in partnering.

Are you still looking for examples.? Our GAP-certified aquaponics farm provides fresh romaine lettuce to our local school systems as part of the USDA farm-to-school program. We are the first GAP certified aquaponics farm in the Commonwealth.

I agree that chelated iron is a great issue to focus on, especially for farms seeking organic certification.

@wyndalegardens do you have any pictures of your system? It sounds like a great scale for testing!
