Eddy Garcia of Living Earth Systems joins me to discuss Natural Aquaponics and how we can create beautiful, functioning systems whether we prefer to nerd out on the numbers or learn through observation and experience.
Originally from Hawaii, and now in California, Eddy spent over 3 decades observing nature and living off-grid. Today he creates state-of-the-art closed-loop regenerative agriculture systems, on a foundation of aquaponics, designed for productivity, but with aesthetics in mind.
Eddy’s design process is motivated by a desire to build systems that mimic nature in both efficiency and beauty, while also building new earth.This results in aquaponics systems with an eye for building holistic systems which include a variety of living creatures. In these installations you can find fish, shrimp, copepods, fungal cultures, several different types of bacterial colonies, plants, worms, and, of course, humans.
If you enjoy this conversation with Eddy, please leave a comment or a question below. We are planning a follow-up in a few months to discuss natural swimming pools.
