Aquaponics – New rain shelter is getting ready

We are working on setting up a rooftop rain shelter to host our new aquaponic system.

I already had a pipe structure we setup a few years ago for an earlier farming project which didn’t really fly :-).  I now modified it to make it a rain shelter. I think this would work well for aquaponics because, we anyway don’t need the plants to be watered and reduced UV will help plants grow better.

A new growbed structure experiment is also in progress, hoping to improve crop density and to make it easier to access plants. Will post on that separately.
