GardenPool - Couple Turning Swimming Pool Into Aquaponics System

from gardenpool: We created GardenPool.org to document our journey of converting an old backyard swimming Pool in to a way to feed our family and live more self-sufficiently.

When we purchased our first home in Mesa, AZ on October of 2009, it came with a large, empty, and run-down pool.

Rather than spending thousands of dollars in fixing the pool or having it filled with fill dirt we decided to design an inexpensive & self-sufficient urban greenhouse.

Initially, we had anticipated self-sufficiency by 2012 but we achieved our goal by mid-2010. Our family gets about 8 fresh eggs a day, unlimited tilapia fish, organic fruit, veggies, and herbs 365 days a year. To our knowledge, the GP (short for Garden Pool) is a one of a kind creation.
