Grow Your Own Food: Harvest Fish and Vegetables and Recycle the Water

Grow Your Own Food: Harvest Fish and Vegetables and Recycle the Water

How to Build Aquaponic Systems to Grow Your Own Food Aquaponics systems can provide healthful and plentiful food, even where water is scarce. Compared with conventional methods, it has several advantages: • Organic vegetables with high yields in small space • Protein, in the form of fish whose nutrition you control • Water conservation (90% water savings over conventional farming) • No pesticides needed • No herbicides needed • Local food production There are two primary purposes for this book; first, to educate people about the promise aquaponics has for efficient and healthful food production, especially where water is scarce, and, second, to provide enough details for the reader to design the kind of system needed and where the resources can be found for building them for homes, organizations, and neighborhoods. The book includes detailed information about the fish, the plants, the irrigation schemes, and other knowledge needed for the successful design and implementation of systems of various sizes. The book describes greenhouses, outdoor ponds, and even an aquaponic lawn as illustrations of the variety of system designs that can be built. Over 50 illustrations show you the components, designs, and finished small farms. The author believes the world needs to more fully appreciate the benefits of aquaponics. Better food, less water, local production, and smaller spaces used. Better for your health, and better for your environment. This book is the natural follow-on to his best-selling book "Tabletop Aquaponics" which covers small systems suitable for family rooms, porches, and science projects. This new book is for larger systems capable of feeding families, neighborhoods, or organizations. Very large commercial aquaponic systems are described in this book for background information, but their design is beyond the scope of this book. Read More »

How to Sprout Raw Food: Grow an Indoor Organic Garden with Wheatgrass, Bean Sprouts, Grain Sprouts, Microgreens, and More

How to Sprout Raw Food: Grow an Indoor Organic Garden with Wheatgrass, Bean Sprouts, Grain Sprouts, Microgreens, and More

Grow Your Own Raw Food Anywhere!Valuable, short guide to sprouting. Would you like to grow some of your own food this year? Indoors? With no sunlight or soil? At any time of the year and at all times of the year? Sprouts allow you to do all that and more. In fact, you can grow all the vegetables your body needs (plus all the protein as well) in an area that's no bigger than your microwave oven. I grow sprouts on top of my refrigerator, harvesting baskets of fresh, raw food every week without even going outside. Growing sprouts is simple and it's cheap. Sprouts can provide you with the power-packed nutrition your body needs at a fraction of the price of store bought food. You can save money while eating right. There's no dirt, no pests, and no weeding required. Raw Food Salads, Sandwiches, Cereals, and More!This short guide (call it a booklet or pamphlet) will teach you how to grow sprouts and enjoy eating them. If you like salads, I'll show you how to make delicious bowlfuls with tasty mild or spicy sprouts. If you enjoy eating cereal for breakfast, try some sprouted grains with natural malt sugars that nourish your body and taste far better than boxed cereals.Need to lose a few pounds?Simply eating a few more sprouted beans will keep you feeling fuller and eating fewer carbs. Toss some bean sprouts, lentil sprouts, or pea sprouts into your next rice or pasta dish; they make great burgers as well. You'll find that your body absorbs the protein better when the beans are sprouted, which usually reduces flatulence as well. All this nutrition, protein, and fiber will have you shedding a few pounds in a hurry.Topics Include:1. Superfood SproutsCheap, Easy to Grow, Provide Year-Round Nutrition2.

Where to Find the Best Raw Food Sprout RecipesDelicious ways to enjoy your sprouts, raw or cookedEat More Raw Foods for Better HealthRaw food contains many nutrients that are lost in the cooking process. Our prehistoric ancestors ate most of their food raw until around 12,000 years ago. The human body has not yet adapted to the large quantities of cooked and processed foods we feed ourselves. This is a big reason for the high rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and other chronic ailments: we are poisoning ourselves with so much over-cooked, over-processed foods. People who switch to raw food diets (or simply include some more raw food in their diets) experience many benefits, such as weight loss and great energy levels. This book will help you increase the quantity of raw food in your diet from sprouts, including salad and sandwich sprouts, wheatgrass, microgreens, and sprouted beans, nuts, seeds, and grains (which most people can digest well without any cooking).Learn how to grow some of your fresh food indoors, in a small space, with no direct light, and no soil (except microgreens). Pick this one up. You won't be disappointed! Read More »
