Good Morning All. What you'll find in this edition...

Nearly missed the first little note from the Weekly Calendar, East Orlando
From Japan, Scientists working toward salt resistant Rice.
Aquatic Eco-Systems to schedule their next round of Aquaponics training.From TED, a great Video about the work being carried out in the U.K.

 Scientists Developing Salt-Tolerant Rice

The March 2011 Japan tsunami contaminated some 20,000 hectares of rice paddies with salt.

Scientists are developing a salt-resistant variety of rice.

The move was prompted, in part, by last year's Japan tsunami, which flooded some 20,000 hectares of rice paddies.

Charlie Price from the social enterprise Aquaponics UK, explores the role aquaponics can play in the future of our collective food supply. He provides an insight into both the applications for aquaponics but more specifically a new approach to urban agriculture.

                                                      ...oooOooo...

 Imagine growing vegetables and fish in the same space.
That’s the idea behind aquaponics,  a marriage of fish farming and soil-less plant cultivation in a single, sustainable closed system.

 Aquatic Eco-Systems, Inc. and Green Sky Growers Conducting Aquaponics Design and Technology Workshop in March 2012Aquatic Eco-Systems, Inc.

(AES) of Apopka, FL held its first Aquaponics Workshop in late November 2011. The “Institute of Sustainable Farming: Aquaponics Technology and Design Workshop” was conducted by Aquatic Eco-Systems’ AES University. The three and a half day workshop featured informative presentations, multiple facility tours and hands-on instruction with AES staff members and special guest, Dr. James Rakocy, the “Father of Aquaponics.”

The success of their recent workshop has prompted Aquatic Eco-Systems to schedule their next round of Aquaponics training.

Next to a warehouse in Northcote, there's a long, white greenhouse. Inside, leafy greens and silver perch are growing together.
It's a community-scale aquaponics system, run by CERES Community Environment Park as part of its Food Hubs project, which aims to create intensive food production sites in the city.

IBC Tote Aquaponics Systems by Jerry Jones

Without a doubt one of the most rewarding aspects of our business is to be able to support small out-of-the garage inventors and craftsmen who have a passion for aquaponics.  One of our roles as a company in this emerging aquaponics community is to provide a marketing platform for their niche products, whether they are vertical towers, sequencing timers,  or complete aquaponics systems.

Backyard aquaponics

Last year I attended a conference here in Panama put on by the pseudonymous Simon Black and the Sovereign Man folks. One of the presentations that particularly caught my attention at the conference was from Colle Davis, the inventor of Portable Farms Aquaponics Systems an aquaponics business that designs food productions systems for small retail and larger commercial customers.

Here tilapia are grown using high protein fish food and liquid oxygen to grow 1 lb of fish per 1 gallon of water. Please don't try this at home as one small failure will destroy....
