Longmont, Colorado (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
April 22 is Earth Day, a time that people around the world officially celebrate the planet we all call home. It’s also the anniversary of the birth of what is believed to be the modern day environmental movement, with the first Earth Day taking place in 1970. Each year, the celebration serves as a reminder of how we could do better to help care for, preserve, and protect our planet. The good news is that even making small changes can add up to big results.
“Many of us live our lives trying to lighten our footprint all year, but Earth Day gives us a yearly reminder to look at trying to do something even better,” explains Sylvia Bernstein, president of The Aquaponics Source, and author of the book “Aquaponics Gardening: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Vegetables and Fish Together” (New Society Publishers, October 2011). “If even a small percentage of us started aquaponic gardens it could really add up and lead to a lot of positive results for the planet as a whole.”
There are many things that starting an aquaponic garden can do to help the environment. Here are five things to consider this Earth Day regarding aquaponic food production:
“There are so many great ways to make a difference,” added Bernstein. “Learning about aquaponics, and starting your own aquaponic garden, will help reduce your carbon footprint, help the planet, and keep you feeling great for being a part of the solution.”
In addition to Bernstein’s book, she is owner of The Aquaponics Source center, located in Longmont, Colo., 15 minutes NE of Boulder. The center focuses on all things Aquaponics, featuring a retail store, education center, and research and development lab. The classes will teach people how to be successful with aquaponics, while the retail store will sell all of the necessary supplies, including aquaponics systems and aquaponics plumbing kits.
