2012 

After a very wet winter - we thought spring had arrived after some lovely warm days - but it was not to be -

the cold wet weather came back with a vengeance!

The growth in the aquadrome continued all winter.

The curled parsley has been cut and cut again and still continues to flourish.

We ran a two day course at the end of March 2012

Students came from London,Milton Keys, Lancashire and South Wales.

They had theory to study and also had some practical work to do !

Setting up a new system so that they could see how easy it was!

5 half barrel growbeds and a floating bed in side the netted polytunnel.


WE added some red fin perch to our fish population - having got permission to keep them from CEFAS.

Young fingerlings arrived safely and appeared to settle down well.

Aquadrome - north side - June 2012

A second two day course was run 30th June/ 1st July 2012

Unfortunately many folk that wanted to attend were unable and so the two students who did attend had our undivided attention!

Here testing water quality.

First catch your fish - then despatch humanely.

Two lovely rainbow trout -ready to be gutted..



and for one of our lunches - a home produced meal

trout fillets with a herby mixed salad and new potatoes (not in the picture !)

And to finish the two days off - presentation of Attendance Certificates

Antonio hopes to return home to Brazil with his aquaponic knowledge.

and David hopes one day to have a commercial aquaponic unit.


and more visitors ....

Two gentlemen from Ireland

interested in Hydroponics and Aquaponics

then visitors from Flintshire..

hoping to set up a community growing system in North Wales


and a student from Aberystwyth University

discussing the merits of aquaponics..

November 2012 - Special urgent request for two day course by two business entrepreneurs!

Desperate to learn more about both hydroponics and aquaponics

Below showing various aquaponic systems

Student catches his own rainbow trout !
