(In the video, I mention that the green house is cooler inside, I meant warmer!)
The Kukea's like to eat fresh and were looking for a way to grow their own food. They did not have much gardening experience and started looking into different ways to grow their own food. After having looked into hydroponics, they heard about Aquaponics and wanted to learn more about it. They were able to gather some information on the internet, but still did not know how to proceed. They found New Streams Aquaponics through an ad on Craiglist and that is when things began to move. I met with the Kukeas and it was not long before they were sharing my passion and excitement for this incredible growing technology. They wanted to start their build as soon as possible so we talked about a design based on their gardening desires and needs and got started within a few days.
As the build progressed the Kukeas also decided that they wanted to be able to grow year-round in their New Streams Aquaponics System and so we constructed a green house as well.
This system features :
- A Single Grow-bed that can be expanded to several more. ( Mrs. Kukea has already asked for another grow-bed for her lettuces.)
- 260 Gallon Fish Tank
- Automation such as and automatic float valve and thermostatically controlled heater
The Kukeas have decided to use Large Mouth Bass in their New Streams Aquaponics System and they are currently on order.
