AQUAPONICS—



Bob Hall (above), founder of the Georgetown Aquaponics and Sustainable Farming Group, presented a program on Backyard Aquaponics to the Little River Basin Master Gardeners (LRBMG) at his residence on Oct. 16. LRBMG members learned about basic aquaponic systems for homeowner food production and toured Hall’s evolving facilities. A “compost tea brewer” and a practical production system utilizing “chicken tractors” and fodder (sprout) cultivation to provide fresh and wholesome vegetation daily for both meat and egg-laying chickens were also explained. Above, Hall displays his demonstration aquaponics system. Texas Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who love to learn about gardening and share their knowledge with their community.
