Well it is that time again when the science teachers get together to have a look around the place and see whats new that might be able to fit their program. This visit we actually had a couple of teachers that already have a system at their school and others that had heard of aquaponics.

After an intital coverage of history, basics and a few questions the teachers wandered around asking questions and looking at the different fish and system options that were available.

As they arrived early there was a little time left over to show them what else we do so they were introduced to the assorted varieties of chickens, quails, rabbits and the new permaculture vegetable garden.
