Community Aquaponics Garden Opening Day
Aqua Gardening is proud to promote Aquaponics in the Brisbane area with the opening of the Community Aquaponics Garden. The three grow beds located in front of the shop are available to the public. The plants were planted by guests at the open day on the 31st of August, 2014. Around 70 people attended the opening day, including the North West News and Enoggera Ward Councillor Andrew Wines. North West News was nice enough to write an article about the community garden here.
The vegetables are grouped in 3 grow beds according to their region of origin. Water from our 1400L fish pond is cycled through the grow beds to provide nutrients and water to the plants. The system runs 24 hrs a day on a flood and drain cycle, and there is lighting provided for those who can only visit the garden in the evening. All of the Aquaponics produce is free for customers and the public to harvest.
Aqua Gardening is pleased to help promote Aquaponics in the Brisbane area.
