Food Freedom - American style - Is it really happening?

Yes it is!
Many are taking up the personal challenge to take control of the food supply. Americans are building home Aquaponic systems, small Aquaponic farms and some big ones as well. They are going about their business securing pure food for the future.

Aquaponics is so attractive as an ECO friendly sustainable food growing system that can be done almost anywhere. We are seeing systems of all sizes popping up all over America from the tropical south to the cooler northern climes. It is happening in Australia and the rest of the world as well. In Australia we have witnessed an explosion of home systems that are predominately media based systems. Aquaponics is well established as a home food growing system.

Murray HallamMurray Hallam ..A Food Freedom Rebel. A pure, secure food system.

I want to show just how good this is and how it is happening. For several years now we have been looking forward to the time when Aquaponics would "take off"and become a recognised fully fledged farming system. We are on the very beginning of exciting times where locally grown, high quality food will become the "normal" way of doing things. Many are stepping out and making it happen in their corner of the world.

My new DVD, now in production will show in particular, "Aquaponics Across America". We have travelled across America filming various Aquaponic farms, educational and charitable organisations and home systems. It is just so exciting to witness the progress being made.

There is so much beautiful information to share with you, to encourage you to get involved in becoming a "Food Freedom Rebel" doing it differently and doing it well; putting food purity and control back into the hands of each one of us. You will see how these trailblazers are implementing their dream and gain valuable insights for your own project.

I need your help to bring this story to you. Please go here, watch a short clip and read on.
Become a "Food Freedom Rebel" It will only take a few minutes.
