Aquaponics is a revolutionary system for growing plants by fertilizing them with the waste water from fish in a sustainable closed system. A combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponic gardening is an amazingly productive way to grow organic vegetables, greens, herbs, and fruits, while providing the added benefits of fresh fish as a safe, healthy source of protein. On a larger scale, it is a key solution to mitigating food insecurity, climate change, groundwater pollution, and the impacts of overfishing on our oceans.Aquaponic Gardening is the definitive do-it-yourself home manual, focused on giving you all the tools you need to create your own aquaponic system and enjoy healthy, safe, fresh, and delicious food all year round. Starting with an overview of the theory, benefits, and potential of aquaponics, the book goes on to explain:—System location considerations and hardware components—The living elements—fish, plants, bacteria, and worms—Putting it all together—starting and maintaining a healthy systemAquaponics systems are completely organic. They are four to six times more productive and use ninety percent less water than conventional gardens. Other advantages include no weeds, fewer pests, and no watering, fertilizing, bending, digging, or heavy lifting—in fact, there really is no downside! Anyone interested in taking the next step towards self-sufficiency will be fascinated by this practical, accessible, and well-illustrated guide.Sylvia Bernstein is the president and founder of The Aquaponic Source.

What is aquaponic gardening, one may want to ask? Well, Aquaponic gardening is the combination of aquaculture (fish farming) with hydroponics (growing of plants with water in gravel, liquid or sand without the use of soil). The fish and the plants work together in a system that constantly recycles its own water. They have a symbiotic relationship. The plants use the effluents produced by fish as food. In return, the plants purify water for the aquatic animals. Aquaponic gardening has become a growing trend over the last ten years as it helps to allow families to create a sustainable environment. This form of gardening was born out of necessity for some challenges based on issues with traditional soil centered gardening that requires more space and energy. Anyway, get a copy of this book now and get all the details on how you can start taking the benefits of setting up one for yourself and grow your own vegetables and fish farming if you like!

With the increasing use and importance of aquaponics in the commercial and domestic sectors, the awareness of these systems has become more relevant these days. We all may be much familiar with aquaponics systems but generally, we lack technical knowledge and factors affecting the performance of these systems. We should know that productivity and performance of these systems directly affect the revenues and the quality of food production from the aquaponics systems. Unlike hydroponics and aquaculture, bacteria play a key role in the aquaponics systems. They are the link between fish and plants, and for the completion of food chain. Hence, taking care of bacteria, especially all those factors that affect bacterial growth is vital.

"The vertical farm is a world-changing innovation whose time has come. Dickson Despommier's visionary book provides a blueprint for securing the world's food supply and at the same time solving one of the gravest environmental crises facing us today."--Sting Imagine a world where every town has their own local food source, grown in the safest way possible, where no drop of water or particle of light is wasted, and where a simple elevator ride can transport you to nature's grocery store - imagine the world of the vertical farm. When Columbia professor Dickson Despommier set out to solve America's food, water, and energy crises, he didn't just think big - he thought up. Despommier's stroke of genius, the vertical farm, has excited scientists, architects, and politicians around the globe. Now, in this groundbreaking book, Despommier explains how the vertical farm will have an incredible impact on changing the face of this planet for future generations. Despommier takes readers on an incredible journey inside the vertical farm, buildings filled with fruits and vegetables that will provide local food sources for entire cities. Vertical farms will allow us to: - Grow food 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - Protect crops from unpredictable and harmful weather - Re-use water collected from the indoor environment - Provide jobs for residents - Eliminate use of pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides - Drastically reduce dependence on fossil fuels - Prevent crop loss due to shipping or storage - Stop agricultural runoff Vertical farms can be built in abandoned buildings and on deserted lots, transforming our cities into urban landscapes which will provide fresh food grown and harvested just around the corner. Possibly the most important aspect of vertical farms is that they can built by nations with little or no arable land, transforming nations which are currently unable to farm into top food producers. In the tradition of the bestselling The World Without Us, The Vertical Farm is a completely original landmark work destined to become an instant classic.
