Who designed an aquaponics system.... comprising a lined pond, aquaplated grow bed with siphon, and a bath tub with a loop siphon...

All filmed for a forthcoming episode of Gardening Australia... hosted by the indominable Costa...

Even the "stars" don't get to avoid gravel/clay washing...

looks like fun...... wish we could see it here in the US...

the local news agencies and shows here in the US just don't want to cover anything anymore...

if its not national, they hardly pay any attention.....
