The Tucson AquaPonics Project is being created to bring community-scale aquaponics to the desert Southwest and then to similar climates around the world, as well as support backyard aquaponics, by providing training, resources and assembling a network of people who can help each other to successfully implement both private and non-profit aquaponics systems. Aquaponics is the way food will be grown in the future, starting now.

In these difficult economic times helping each other is more important than ever.
The current news headlines are proclaiming not just significant increases in the price of food, but actual food shortages. Many people have already suffered the loss of their jobs, their homes and even their self-esteem. Others are now just barely making it from paycheck to paycheck. In fact, too many people now have more 'month' left over at the end of the paycheck than the other way around.
Community Aquaponics Centers can help to both feed and employ people.
And not just here in Tucson, but around the world. The systems we design and perfect here in Tucson in the coming months can be set up in other parts of the US and the world that have a climate similar to ours.
Individual Aquaponics Systems
Aquaponics can provide food for a family, with extra to be traded or sold to neighbors, or at a farmer's market.
