Bob Haber is converting his food growing enterprise from grown-in-the-ground to Aquaponics.
Troy, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2013 -- This is the first of several steps to bring the much larger Aquaponics project to completion.
This first step will create hand crafted raised grow beds for immediate use with a soil/compost mixture (not an Aquaponics system). This will enable Bob Haber to continue growing and selling micronutrient-enhanced produce, as he is presently. It will eliminate the bending (which he can no longer do) by having the beds raised, while he also works on the rest of the Aquaponics Project.
Bob Haber has been involved with growing food since he was 14 years old, a period of about 55 years. For him, growing healthy, safe, delicious and nutritious food is a passion, not just a passing fancy. Bob became a Master Gardener in 1979, has kept honeybees for over 25 years, and ran a food pantry for 14 years that fed over 40,000 people a year.
Bob grows and sells micronutrient-enhanced produce to restaurants and has had a roadside stand for over 40 years. In order to maintain his customer base while he goes about building the much larger project, he will make these grow beds in order to continue to grow high quality produce. His goal is to make 150 of these 4' X 8' X 1' beds.
This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: August 07, 2013 - October 06, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
