Backyard Aquaponics Farming Fresh Fish and Vegetables | PARAGRAPHIC

Aquaponics combines two growing methods, aquaculture and hydroponics, to create a self-contained, well-balanced ecosystem. Fish are fed and raised in a tank and as gravity pulls the wastewater through a hydroponic garden, bacteria feed on the waste, breaking it down into essential nutrients for the plants to grow. The system then returns the cleaned water back to the fish reservoir so the process can begin again.

In this episode, Charles Collins shares his backyard aquaponic and hydroponic gardens where he’s able to grow tilapia, leafy greens, peppers, herbs and so much more, all in the suburban desert. Together we grow!
