Our first *Official* Aquaponic Open Day
Saturday 2nd May 2009
It was a warm sunny day and many people attended , some from as far away as London!
They all were astonished by the luxuriant growth in the Aquadrome as well as in the Hydroponic Unit and were very keen to set up their own units.
We wish them well.
