I took an update video of the garden to show the devastation and our new starting point.
I am still a little bummed out by this, but moving forward.
On the moving side, we started up our aeroponic garden in the basement again. This version is starting out with Bell Peppers, Cucumber, Basil, Thyme and Rosemary.
We are only doing one bin so far, but that may change up here over the next couple of weeks.
Over the next couple of weeks, we have some more plans!
As I am sure everyone has heard, we are still attempting to get the Alberta Aquaponics Sustainable Communities Prince of Peace project up and running.
Our attempt to get funding for this project through the Peavey Mart Agricultural Grant has fallen through.
Alberta Aquaponics thanks both Peavey Mart and Alberta Agriculture for the opportunity of being a part of the competition for the grant.
Although we did not win the grant, we are very happy to have been giving the chance to be a part of the grant application process and the learning experience it provided us. We are also very proud to have had our idea reviewed along side of the other fantastic ideas submitted and the feedback we received as a result. The entire experience was very positive and reassured us that even though we did not win, we are on the correct path of making great things happen!
We have yet to hear who has won the grant at this point, but we are sure that the idea will be very worthy and we congratulate them on the win.
We are not giving up however, and we are looking for your support in a number of ways in making this a success!
If you are a musician or vocalist, we are looking for people to come help us put together a little music video involving a messed up version of Yellow Submarine. We are looking for all age groups and abilities in an attempt to show a full cross culture of the community.
Come join in for some community involvement, laughs and a little sing along.
If you are interested, jump into the forums and lets set up some times and dates to make it happen!
