Any body into this. Im wanting to get me a greenhouse and try hydroponics and put a raised bed or two in it. Deer dont leave my outside garden alone anymore and it would cost me 300-400 just to fence my garden spot in. So im going to get me a greenhouse.

I've been wanting to set up a little aquaponics system at my place. You are a little limited on what you can grow in the system but you dont have to worry about drought and there is less pest to deal. There is tons of information on the internet about both systems. If you do it make sure you post an update of your progress.

I've got a project going on right now to get a greenhouse up and I've been collecting everything for an aquaponics system. I"ve got pretty much everything except the pump and pvc pipe/tubing at this point.

I'll start taking pictures and posting as I make progress (which has been really slow due to deer season).

I have a 2200 gallon aquaponics lab I just built at school. I have enough fish rearing capacity to supply grow beds in a pretty large greenhouse. My system is floating raft with a three stage filter. Each stage in the filter is a 35 gallon barrel.

I'm still working on mine but no real progress. Too many projects at once - so I've got 2 others in front of this one. But I'm not giving up!
