Aquaponics combines two growing methods, aquaculture and hydroponics, to create a self-contained, well-balanced ecosystem. Fish are fed and raised in a tank and as gravity pulls the wastewater through a hydroponic garden, bacteria feed on the waste, breaking it down into essential nutrients for the plants to grow. The system then returns the cleaned water back to the fish reservoir so the process can begin again. In this episode, Charles Collins shares his backyard aquaponic and hydroponic gardens where he's able to grow tilapia, leafy greens, peppers, herbs and so much more, all in the suburban desert.

Why kill fish when you can just kill vegetables?
I have always been afraid that vegetables grown hydroponically wouldn't be as nutritious as vegetables grown in remineralized fertile soil. Anyway you're looking really good for 50, keep eating those fresh greens.
The passion that this man has for his craft and the innovation that he shows with the aquaponics garden he has created is really something. Subbed his channel in the hopes to one day emulate his set up. I especially like the idea of off grid power. For things like prepping this is a must.
This is what I have been going after for over a decade now. Tried it in my basement. Did not quite work out so well. But its still a Dream.
Lets all aspire to have the positive vibes that Charles exudes!! Wish you were my neighbor! 1❤
Awesome contents and so much passion 👍
Your awesome. I wish we were neighbors. Keep being amazing.
I love the passion you have for life and gardening. Once people get in the garden they will get addicted.I can spend all day in the garden and it feels like the best day on earth, Great video

mad fucker but i love the methods
Must be f*cking shit for all those fish stuck in that tank which is small.
You said you like in desert but you have winter! Im a little ignorant about deserts.I live in zone 7, east coast ,I'm going to google now -At first I thought you were in California or somewhere inUSA-That there's no winters ALL your efforts are even more incredible to me as I am sure to others
Your Amazing! You DESERVE that pool! If everyone tried 50% to reduce waste, we would be in good shape,Your doing 99.99% if not over 100% Your produce looks amazing! You should be in the White House consulting USA farmer !
