People I tell about my Aquaponic gardening seem to instantly share the excitement, but if they ponder over it very long, they seem to question themselves on “Why Garden?” in the first place. They feel it is too little an effort to make any difference to their carbon foot print and a fruitless venture (pun intended). Michale Pollan perhaps said it best in his New York Time article, from years ago.
“The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world.”
Research & D-I-Y
Here is a TED video that the above article had an impact on. It is on how a researcher went public rather than commercial and impacted over 18,000 DIY Gardeners!

Remember, we are not alone on the planet, and little efforts by one can accumulate into a BIG impact by many!
Now is the time to prepare for spring! Learn about your favorite gardening, hopefully Aquaponics, now take action.
