Aquaponics | 8 Years in
I feel as if sufficient time, sweat and tears have gone by that I can sincerely put some words down.
Note also that this is an ongoing piece of work I shall be editing as I have additional information to add. New information shall be in blue text.

1. What is Aquaponics
As best as I can put it (meaning in my own words after being a practicing Aquaponic Farmer, Aquaponic student and time reading many sources on the topic) Aquaponics, a form of aquaculture, is the culture of both plants and aquatic animals in a closed recirculating water based system. The system comprises of a fish production component and a filtration component, of which the plant component is part and parcel of. The aquatic plants and animals exist in a symbiotic relationship where one is required for the other. The fish provide the organic nutrients for the plants to thrive and the plants via their roots absorb nutrients, which if left become toxic to the fish, before the water is recirculated to the fish component.
There are a couple varieties and technologies employed in this form of aquaculture, but note that my focus would be on deep water culture. My focus is also on my experience with Aquaponics since I have first discovered it.
This is a free Subscription
WHY AM I asking that you subscribe?
As a fan of my work you often are only exposed to the end result. You are seldom privy to the back end. The challenges. The creativity. The building. The drafts. The trial attempts. The effort. The financial costs associated with creating. You typically remain isolated for this side of my creative life and journey. Many of these challenges while, not specific to me as a creative, are experienced at specific and unique times, in specific and unique situations and locations, how I deal with and resolve them are unique to me. Having knowledge of this can open your eyes to another perspective and other aspects, of leading and pursuing curiosities and a creative life, that you may not be privy to.
I am also asking that you Subscribe so that I can offer you something in return, something unique to my journey and share the behind the scenes workings of my creative life. I am here so that I can create freely.
I would like a way for us to connect, to converse. I would like an opportunity to hear from you and learn what you would like to see more of here on the IntrovertlyBubbly Creative because at times I feel like I have no idea all who are reading this Journal and I would like that to change.
Wouldn't you love KNOWING THAT YOU ARE part ROOTS THAT Keep's THE TREE, FRUIT and FLOWERS of your favorite Creator's Community SUSTAINED.
In addition to your subscription I would like to invite you to join your favorite creator's, me in this case, community. Here you can reward me for and contribute towards making the stuff you love.
Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month or per post that I make.
For example, if you pay $2 per video, and I release 3 videos in February, then your card gets charged a total of $6 that month.
This means I get paid regularly (every time I release something new), and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. Isn't that cool.
That’s right--Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion. And imagine your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.
