Join me, Gary Freeman, host of Across America Radio Program, as we find out about this increasing popular gardening called Aquaponics with our expert on the topic, Sylvia Bernstein, President of The Aquaponic Source, Inc. We’ll learn about the problems with traditional soil based gardening to include the weeds, amount of water required, soil borne insects and much more. It all happens this Saturday in the 1:30 hour MST, on KGAB. Click past the jump to find out more!

 

(©theaquaponicsource.com)Aquaponics is the marriage of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soilless growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the growing plants and the plants provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in. The third participants are the microbes (nitrifying bacteria) and composting red worms that thrive in the growing media. They do the job of converting the ammonia from the fish waste first into nitrites, then into nitrates and the solids into vermicompost that are food for the plants.
