Earthship Aquaponic Prototype

Four months after filling the pond with water, we have a thriving vegetable and soon, fish producing Aquaponic System in the Towers Earthship at Eathship Biotecture, Taos, NM. For those of you who initially thought that the pond looked like a “kiddy pool” and not really well integrated, take another look. It is beautiful, peaceful and serene, and producing food.

It is a joy to be working with this Aquaponic Prototype every day, as it not only is producing food, but is also aesthetically very pleasing, creating a beautiful serene atmosphere in the Towers greenhouse, making my work there a meditative experience every morning. I feel very blessed and wish I could spend all day there!

First Aquaponics Salad from Earthship Biotecture Visitor Center

aquaponic sytemFebruary 20. 2013, I made our first AQUAPONIC salad from lettuce, tomatoes and herbs, growing in our Aquaponic system.

This Aquapocic System was built on 9 and 10 October 2012, by James Fry, an Earthship Academy student from 2012, as his independent field study.

“My mission is to empower people to provide for themselves.” – James Fry

This past weekend, Earthship incorporated another permacultural practice into its headquarters’ education facility.  The Visitor Center serves to showcase the base fundamentals and principle concepts to the public on a daily basis.  There is information, books, an extensive greenhouse, videos, pictures and now, an aquaponics system.  From our summer academy session, James Fry took the initiative to share his knowledge and experience building these systems and has given a 2-hour, hands-on class to two academy groups.  This time around, he decided to move forward and do an entire workshop building this system start-to-finish with 10 academy students and some staff to ensure that the system would be maintained properly.
