Homegrown Gh Ap



What we do:

There’s nothing better than walking into a greenhouse in December and pickin’ peppers to snack on as you gaze at all the beautiful, green life around you! Ok.. maybe there is one way to make it better. Knowing that everything was grown organically and eco-friendly in your aquaponic system – where the fish are the stars of the show! That’s what we do… We build greenhouses and aquaponic systems so that you can have that, “There’s nothing better than this…” feeling, right at home!

Who it’s for:

I hear it all the time, “I want to grow a garden, BUT…” And the excuses range from, “I don’t have time,” to “I don’t have enough space,” to “I don’t have a green thumb.” I LOVE hearing these excuses because I’m the one that gets to tell them the good news… YES, YOU CAN!!

Why we’re different:

We’re admittedly not Master Gardeners. We’ve tried and failed to grow a garden in raised beds in the backyard. Then tried and failed again. Until we learned about aquaponics. It was a game changer! Suddenly our thumbs were greener than a jalapeno!

Of course there was a learning curve and a bit of trial and error. That’s why we want to share what we’ve learned with you! Aquaponics is so much fun and amazing to learn about – but it can be frustrating to get it right. And unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation out there that can cost you a lot of time and money if you follow bad advice. We don’t want you to have to go through that! We put a lot of time into researching materials, different techniques, and maintaining systems. We’ll be there for you as you start your system and help you along the way.

My dad, Steve, is the carpenter here. And I’ve been his trusty assistant since before I can remember. He’s done woodworking for 30 years. He’s built three wooden canoes and a kayak, puzzles, cutting boards, bookshelves, headboards – which ultimately led to building greenhouses and aquaponic systems. He’s constantly thinking of different ways to do things and taught me long ago to, “make every weld better than your last” – meaning that we find ways to improve ourselves with every project… Did I mention he’s a welder too?
