AQUAPONIC GARDEN

The Aztecs and the ancient Chinese independently invented the technology of gardening with fish more than 2,300 years ago. People use this technique to grow rice and other vegetables even today. They use water from the fish to fertilize the plants.The plants produced more food, used less water, and wasted no nutrients, and the fish grew larger. There are simple ways of gardening available to you. The goal of an aquaponic garden is to mimic nature. Aquaponic gardens use far less water because water returns from the garden to the pond in a cycle, fertilizer create naturally rich, sustainable, and healthy soil grow larger. The concept is simple. A pond or aquarium provides a home for fish. The fish naturally eat worms, insects, larvae, and algae and produce waste The waste collects in the water and the water is used to hydrate the garden. The garden's soil filters waste from the water and the plants take up the nitrates to grow. The gardener harvests food and flowers from the plants. After filtering through the soil, the water returns to the pond. Vegetable peelings and organic kitchen scraps are returned to the soil as compost. The cycle continues.
