Growing Fish & Plants in an Aquaponics Micro Food Forever™ Farm is Awesome.
Dear Subscriber:
It’s been about one month since we completed our big conversion over here at Aquaponics USA & Aquaponics World turning our Greenhouse and our Growroom into a single system Aquaponics Demo Micro Food Forever™ Farm; and the results are amazing.
We turned our demonstration Greenhouse and Growroom from demonstrations of our Aquaponics USA Food Forever™ Small School and Backyard Growing Systems into a demonstration of a Micro Food Forever™ Farm.
Small Backyard and School Systems are a completely different design than our Micro Food Forever™ Farm, which at the moment doesn’t have one Deep Media Grow Bed set up.
Everything you’re about to see growing in our Greenhouse and our Growroom are growing in proprietary combination Deep Water Culture/Nutrient Film Technique Grow Beds that we call Duffy Ducts™ after their designer, Oliver Duffy.
The image above is our new Aquaganic™ Trademark Logo. Aquaganic™ food is the healthiest food on the planet because it is beyond Organic. It’s grown in a Pesticide, Petrochemical and GMO free Aquaponics systems where the fish are fed fish food that has no land animal parts like pig’s feet or cow tails as a protein supplement.

Here’s what our Micro Food Forever™ Farm Growroom looked like one month ago.
The pink light you see here is coming from four LED Grow Lights we are using to grow our Seedlings. The Seedling Area has 11 Growing Holes instead of 6 making it possible to grow lots more tiny seedlings before they are transplanted into the Grow Out Horizontal Duffy Duct™ System.

Here’s what that Growroom looks like today!
In this photo, you can see the Butter, Head, Romaine and Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce.

Here’s the front of our Groowroom where we 
are growing Swiss Chard and Butter Lettuce.
 
We are testing out a new Grow Light. It’s called an Induction Light; and it’s similar to the T5’s we have everywhere in our Growroom except here in the front. We’re finding there are several advantages to Induction Lighting. First and foremost, they are about twice as efficient as either T8’s or T5’s. Secondly, they last 5 to 10 times longer. A typical Induction Light designed as a Grow Light will last for 70,000 hours at nearly 100% brightness and continue on to 100,000 hours at 70% brightness.

Our Growroom Is Pumping Out So Much Lettuce We’re Starting a Locally Grown CSA Program To Sell It!
In this photo we’re growing Living Romaine and Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce along with some Living Cabbage. All of our produce comes with the roots still attached for a long shelf and cooler life.

Our Basil Is Growing So Tall It’s Touching The Lights!
One of the fastest and easiest things to grow in a Food Forever™ Farm System is Basil. It rapidly grows huge leaves and tall plants. Induction Lights hang about a foot above Fluorescent Lights, which will be perfect for growing Basil Plants this tall without them hitting the top of the Grow Lights.

We’ve Added Some Tasty Head Lettuce To Our Lettuce Selection.
The loose, curly leaf Head Lettuce is crispy, firm and fits perfectly in our Clam Shell containers for packaging and delivering to our Community Supported Agriculture participant markets.

You’re Not Going To Believe What’s Happening In Our Greenhouse!
Our system designer, Oliver Duffy, has outdone himself this time. He’s designed a Vertical System that can pump out 224 heads of Lettuce and still we have almost as much room for Deep Media Beds as we had in our original Greenhouse. The photo above is what the  original Greenhouse used to look like.

Here’s A Series Of Pictures Showing Our Vertical System We’ve Named After Our System Designer, Oliver Duffy.
This Duffy Duct™ System is working so well, it’s actually what has prompted us to start the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program in our local Hi-Desert Community. We’re being overrun with Living Romaine Lettuce that is delicious, gorgeous and huge.

In The Previous Photo, You Only See One Wall Of A Two-Wall Inverted “V” Duffy Duct™ System.

Here’s a peek at the other side of the Inverted “V” Duo Walls!

We Have Two Sets Of Inverted “V” Walls In Our 28×8 Sq. Ft. Greenhouse Growing 224 Heads of Living Romaine!
This Vertical System has been in the design stages for quite a while so it’s a real joy to see it in action; and it’s working beautifully. We’re planning to add a hoop house next to this Greenhouse with as many of these Inverted “V” Lettuce Walls as we can put in it. So stay tuned.

Here’s the Aquaponics USA CSA Program Invitation!
If you live in the Hi-Desert of California above Palm Springs, own or manage a small local market or restaurant, you’re invited to join our CSA Program. We’ll be enlarging the CSA Program to include local residents once we get that Hoop House built because then we’ll have enough Living Lettuce, Herbs and Leafy Greens to include our local residents. In the meantime, restaurant owners and market owners can call (760) 671-3053 to get an appointment with us to discuss and join our Hi-Desert CSA! Watch this Section of our Newsletter for a List of all the participating Markets and Restaurants in Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree & 29 Palms!

If You’re A Local, You Can Purchase Our Living Lettuce At Sue’s Health Foods Store In Yucca Valley!

Sue has been encouraging and supporting us for over a year now; and her Sue’s Health Food Store was the first market to sign up for our CSA Program. You can pick up a head of delicious, nutritious Living Romaine Lettuce from her cooler or get a clam-shelled box of crispy loose leaf Living Head Lettuce. No other company is selling Living Romaine or Living Head Lettuce. We’ll be delivering some Living Butter Lettuce to her store soon. Look for our
zer0 Pesticides, Petrochemicals & GMO’s™ Brand!
