The BBC came down to the Beyond the Finish Line space recently to catch up on what we’ve been up to! You can read the article here.
We’re in the thick of the Commonwealth Games here in Glasgow at the moment, so there are a lot of great opportunities to get out and about and spread the find word of aquaponics to folk. Last weekend we participated in the Local Food Market in the Briggait, which featured some great local and community food initiatives from around Glasgow. It was a brilliant opportunity to talk to people about what we’re doing and to show off our new aquaponics bike! The bike was born of a slightly misguided brainstorm had about how to build a portable, engaging aquaponics system, and a very talented bike man. It allows us to bring aquaponics to schools and community groups around Glasgow so show what it’s all about. The pump is solar powered and in its next phase will hopefully also feature pedal power.
We don’t want to stress the fish out too much, so they’re currently back in our home tank resting up, but if you’re about Glasgow you may bump into us someday soon!
