John from goes on a field trip to Urban Organics in St. Paul, Minnesota to share with you the first certified organic commercial aquaponic indoor farm that he has ever seen. This farm is was built in an area with a depressed economy and is utilizing the old Hamms beer brewery to create jobs and economic growth for the area. In this episode you will get a full tour of the Urban Organics Aquaponics facility to see a commercially viable organic, aquaponic farm that is growing local food indoors. You will discover how aquaponics is more sustainable than the current agriculture system, how aquaponics works, the inputs being used as well as how they DO NOT use raw fish pop and pee to feed their plants like most aquaponics systems and farms do. You will discover some of the facts that sets Urban Organics apart and how indoor aquaponics has the potential to change the current food system system of today that is broken.

    The nitrogen cycle is still taking place in the rocks and other places. The filter probably does a great job but it's happening elsewhere too.

    Maybe write a script and condense the information… Like 9/10 words you say are extraneous or repetitive.

    Thank you for this interesting video. I wonder if the fishes were somehow contaminated, would the whole crop be damaged?

    I really like your videos!  This is a good video.  Here is my question John:  is there any research on using rabbit manure to feed the fish in an aquaponics system? Other than fish food and duck weed what manure can I use to feed the fish in the system.

    The Achilles heel of an aquaponic system is that it's power intensive.  Pumps, lights, indoor climate control, etc all require electrical power.  An aquaponic system like this can go to hell in a few hours without that power.

    No, I'm not poo-pooing the idea, far from it.  I LOVE the concept.  However, for aquaponics to truly take off, we're going to need a comprehensive plan on how to generate the electricity needed.

    I can't imagine building a system without considering the need for mechanical and biological filtration. surprised to hear people miss that part of the aquaponics set up
