Introduce yourself here and let us know who you are, where you are from, how long you have been farming and what your dreams and aspirations are for your farm.

I am a 20 year old student who is currently studying at UTS. The degree I am studying is Information Technology.

I currently reside in Sydney on the North Shore. I haven't farmed before, but have done a lot of research into aquaponics and tested my theories with demos built from recycled materials from council kerbside cleanups. 

 

My dreams are to build a small hobby farm to test a pilot aquaponics case study and then slowly expand this system into a modular form that is easy to use and easy to install for worldwide use regardless of differing climates and conditions.

 

I hope to learn a lot from this forum before embarking on my first purchase of property.

 

Cheers,

Allen

Hi Allen,

Welcome to the small farming forum, pleased to have you as part of the group.

Your idea sounds very interesting, lots of small farmers are looking at ways to sustainably produce their own food and also provide a supplementary income. Something that is scalable and does not require a large upfront cost would be really exciting.

Look forward to hearing how your business model progresses.

Regards,

Charlie
