Today we have a bus load of teachers coming to visit and the chairs are set up ready. The weather is looking delightful for the garden setting talk.

Well it is that time again when the science teachers get together to have a look around the place and see whats new that might be able to fit their program. This visit we actually had a couple of teachers that already have a system at their school and others that had heard of aquaponics.

After an intital coverage of history, basics and a few questions the teachers wandered around asking questions and looking at the different fish and system options that were available.

As they arrived early there was a little time left over to show them what else we do so they were introduced to the assorted varieties of chickens, quails, rabbits and the new permaculture vegetable garden.
