What's going on with aquaponics? Why is it becoming the quickest growing form of agriculture? Why do schools have a budget for teaching aquaponics? Why are people growing their own food? How are people growing plants in their houses or on the balcony, with such a small foot print? What makes it so appealing? ? ?
Most people would agree that economically speaking, times are tough. Prices of everything are up, from gasoline to haircuts to cereals that get smaller but cost more and more. The price of living is going up. Peoples' pay hasn't. As more people realize they can't afford to eat out as much, they need a good budget for groceries. But even those prices are going up. The alternative is to grow your own food. And even if price isn't the main factor, aquaponics is a rapid brush fire type of phenomenon that people of all ages are adopting. Aquaponics systems have such a wide spectrum of benefits that more and more systems get purchased by public and private elementary through college schools. As students learn about the benefits in the classroom, it goes home with them and the brush fire catches on to parents and friends.
