Today I’m starting a new segment called “Farm Tours” where I talk about what I learned from visiting different Aquaponics Farms around the world.

In this episode I talked about a recent visit to Tuloy Children’s Center right outside Manila.

The thing that impressed me the most (other than how they’re able to take kids off the street and turn their lives around) was how they run everything off of just one pump from a sump to and tower.

This has some amazing applications if you want to go off grid with your Aquaponics Systems.
