~ WELCOME TO GAIL'S AQUAPONIC GARDEN ~
~ PLEASE READ ~
We are making some changes in our Greenhouse/systems! We sold our original Aquaponics system and all of the tilapia to a near-by friend, Tim D. who will now handle all sales of the fish.
We are working to make this transition as seamless as possible for those purchasing Tilapia. As always, the info, price, etc. on this page supersedes any ads you find out on the internet; they are subject to change as we move forward with the transition.
When you send a form requesting information or to purchase tilapia, an email will be sent to Tim, and he will get in touch with you and make arrangements to get the fish to you. I will keep the information on my website for him for several months until the transition is complete and the system is up and running at his greenhouse/property.
Note: Gail’s Aquaponic Garden will continue to sell off items such as excess pvc pipe, stock tanks, plants, seeds, dried herbs, fish food, etc. to help off-set the price to run the greenhouse. Please check out “Shop” in the menu above. If you wish to contact me for anything other than fish, please use the form below or the one on the contact page.
Thank you~ Gail
Aquaponic (Aq~ua~pon~ic ) Garden:
a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic animals supplies nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purify the water.
We are not a fish farm, store, or food business. Gail’s Aquaponic Garden is a backyard hobby that shares my experiences and information/resources to help new gardeners get their Aquaponic garden up and running.
We also have tried/tested other methods of gardening, including: Hydroponics, aeroponics, self-watering bucket systems, Vermiculture, the Kratky method, etc.
If you are still growing your herbs, fruits & veggies the traditional way (with dirt) and are tired of weeding, preparing the ground every Spring and cleaning up every Fall, etc., you might want to consider switching to an Aquaponic garden.
Aquaponics is a chemical & pesticide-free gardening method that uses 90% less water then conventional (dirt) gardening and exceeds the USDA organic standard requirements. And, because the grow beds are raised, working in your garden is easy on the back!. One of my favorite things about growing plants in an Aquaponics garden is that although you will witness your plants “taking off”, there are very few weeds that grow in the system- that’s a win-win for me. Once you try it, you will probably not go back!
In an effort to find the best gardening method for myself, I have tried a variety of ways to grow veggies and ornamental plants including hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics, the Kratly method (no pumps, filters, etc. needed) and, most recently, a self-watering bucket system (which I am loving!)
Our original system was made from large stock tanks and other items you can purchase locally and at reasonable prices. This website will soon provide you information as to how you can build your own system.
Excuse me while I redesign my site. Check back often as there is a lot I’ll be adding. Below are the latest updates:
