Well, we did it.

Our ten intrepid volunteers managed to build a DIY aquaponics setup from raw materials in a period of two hours on the dot!

It’s hard to overstate how impressive it is to see a bunch of permaculture folks form efficient teams almost immediately, and how much fun they have working together. Truly inspiring!

In the end, they constructed what will be the Cold Weather Aquaponics portable aquaponic trailer. Now we just need to name it! If you have a suggestion for a name for our new aquaponics system, share it in the comments below.

Here are some pictures of our hardworking bunch, and a video of the finished product.
