Aquaponics Smallholding Plan
About our project:
This new Aquaponics Smallholding based in rural Cheshire is a community agriculture start-up project.
Our plan is to provide for the wider community:-
Since the Easter weekend we’ve been active on the site clearing the space in the old wooden rearing sheds with a view to converting part of it into an “agricultural classroom”.
We’ve taken down most of the wood and block-work partitions leaving us a 23ft x 19ft space and cleared the many odds and ends stuff that’s been stored and accumulated in there over the years.
Project DRAFT Plan at 24/04/18
1. Priority is the rearing shed to classroom conversion work :-
Due to it being a community type project we have little or no budget. So for all of this work we are going to have to be very creative in the obtaining, reusing, and reclamation of materials (wood, bricks, panelling, paint, insulation, electrics, plumbing, etc) for the conversion.
As you can imagine planning to a tight schedule is very difficult when we are not sure about the availability of materials so this is where Agile helps,
BUT a fixed deadline is for the teaching area to be ready and usable for our course starting on Friday 11th May Intro to AQUAPONICS Weekend
2. Setup of greenhouse and outdoors growing areas:-
3. Setup of the Aquaponics system:-
We usually can offer our weekend volunteers mugs of hot tea or coffee and some really good home produced organic food.
There are more that enough tasks on this project to keep several people busy for the rest of the year, and then there will be the on-going operational activity to keep the Aquaponics Smallholding running.
