Living Water Aquaponics store beginning?

J Shocklie sent me a message saying they want to get involved with the gathering of materials for us ap people. They had good ideas with reusing stuff like spas and freezers that would make a great container for fish. I suggested using my website design skills to form a website showing materials available. I have registered the domain name livingwaterap.com, so if anyone out there knows where to get stuff either free or for a price please let me know.See More

David,

Thank you for the link, I'll check it out. If you know of anyone with 'coop and pond', please let me know. If not, please consider putting a team together to host a table on the tour. Aquaponics is fascinating to say the least and I know the tour-goers would love to hear about it.

Thanks,
