The Amazing Benefits of a Home Organic Aquaponics System + SPECIAL OFFER!

What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is an integrated aquaculture (growing fish) and hydroponic (growing soil-less plants) system that mutually benefits both environments.

Aquaponics was essentially born out of hydroponics, which at the time made farming a lot easier. This process was associated with planting your veggies inside containers together with water. The hydroponic model involved utilizing lots of chemicals and fertilizers to promote growth, so the produce was not 100 % natural.

Thankfully, fertilizers and harmful chemicals are not required when setting up your own home organic aquaponics system. The fish waste is absorbed by the greenery which is used as a nutrient solution for the growing plants, cultivating a wonderful condition for them to grow in. The only external input to the system is food for the fish. Both systems complement each other in practical interdependence. So essentially, if you have happy and content fish, you have an amazing system that will produce fresh food for you all year round!

I recently posted an article, How 1 MILLION Pounds Of Organic Food Can Be Produced On 3 Acres, which featured the work of farmer Will Allen, the Urban Farmer. Will has figured out a self-sustaining agricultural system that can grow 1 million pounds of food every year, on just 3 acres of land using the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a re-circulating system.

And you can do it too!

The response we received from our previous story was amazing, and we received countless questions from readers who wanted to know more about this simple but ground-breaking concept. So today, I am happy to provide you more detailed information on Aquaponics and the Growing Power organisation’s community initiatives, answer some of your frequently asked questions, and share with you an interview with Will Allen (pictured), the founder of Growing Power.

If you missed our first article, you’ll find an introduction to self-sufficient Aquaponics farming here.

If you want to jump straight in with step-by-step instructions on setting this system up in your home, you’ll find details at www.aquaponics.wakeup-world.com.

The quality and accessibility of our food supply is a mounting issue today. With GMOs, chemical pesticides and low-nutrition processed foods now commonplace in the mainstream supply, taking control of your own food supply is one of the smartest things you can do – for your health and for your hip pocket.

So, with limited space, how can we create an independent food supply?

I recently came across this amazing video of a man, urban farmer Will Allen, who has figured out a self-sustaining system that can grow 1 million pounds of food every year, on just 3 acres of land, using the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a re-circulating system.

If you’re interested in starting your own Aquaponics system in your home, be sure to check out our exclusive special offer to Wake Up World readers at the bottom of this page.

Grow 1 Million Pounds of Food on 3 Acres

Using greenhouses and a closed eco-system technology known as Aquaponics, Will Allen has taken urban farming to new extremes. In fact, a packed greenhouse produces a crop value of $5 square foot! ($200,000 per acre). So how is he doing this?
