We are about to embark on after 3 years research in Aquaponics. We attended a workshop run by Murray Hallam alongwith guest speaker Dr Wilson Lennard.

We are working towards setting up a Educational Centre for Aquaponics, and collecting growth data per vegetable type for NZ climate. Our location has not been sorted yet...but is being worked on and that's mainly due to cost of land and establishing from scratch. However we are considering leasing if the right option presents itself.

So our garden has not been established as yet but hope to start real soon...
