aquaponics is the go !!

BOSS recently hosted a field trip venturing to Murray Hallum’s Practical Aquaponics at North Maclean. Twenty five eager visitors lapped up Murray’s informative talks and were very impressed with the quality of the lush fruit, vegetables, herbs and fish growing in his aquaponics system.

BOSS purchased the set of DVDs, Aquaponics made Easy and the Secrets of Aquaponics, for the benefit of members. Thanks to one keen participant, a local demonstration project is getting underway at kalbar, with a view to sharing more information locally on the concept. We believe this will be the first of many aquaponics endeavours around boonah.

comments from the visit included “another enjoyable day. The aquaponics setup was very inspiring and Murray was very personable and informative”, “fantastic, always wanted to learn and see aquaponics in action with a view to implementing the system. A great day !!” and “got our creative juices flowing, now need to do it !!”

so thank you Murray for a fantastic day, sharing your knowledge and tasty lettuce. We are pleased to give you a year’s honorary BOSS membership, a small token of our appreciation for your generosity.
