Here is a very sorted project that has a great deal to offer on a great many levels. It's outlook is great from start to finish. Built with a great deal of #reclaimed materials, uses #renewable energy and offers year round, consistent quality food. By nature of grow method it's organic and by including #aquaponics is a very symbiotic process.
A perfectly adaptable design that will work anywhere. High quality, low carbon miles and great for local employment. Businesses such as this have a huge impact on local economies and the way in which economic multipliers work, is vastly different to the monoculture, import biased way in which we currently favour. #bravo :-)
 
+Michael Coen "dad" for the collaboration! The grow house is done. We can now grow fantastic produce year round in Colorado. This came out of the ground with hand dug 6x6 posts, homemade trusses, and a plethora of reclaimed and repurposed building materials. The grow house is heated with hot water solar that stores in thermal tank plumbed to copper pipes buried under the floor. Fish tanks are also heated with their pun closed loop system from thermal storage tank. We also have an air system that can pump air in the floor to help heat or cool. The building is powered electrically by solar as well. Currently we have six 4x8 foot rafts with the capacity of over a hundred heads of fantastic lettuce a week. We are still building up to the aquaponic nutrient levels we need to run all the rafts but things are coming along nicely. We are not only growing for ourselves but have been asked by a few local organic restaurants to provide fresh produce for them weekly. We are also using the grow house as a demo grow sight for everything we grow with our www.growleds.co LED grow light bars, as well as a showroom of sorts for indoor growing with LEDs. I think we are really going to enjoy the space.

These figures also includes Irish nationals. I know the BNP ended up accepting the Irish so I assume its successors do too.

#busted ! Turns out that the reason #ukip is a bit 'odd' is their illustrious leader spends his entire life with someone's hand right up his ass. No wonder his decision making skills are shonky.

If anyone is up for some big travel natural riding, Cadair Idris in Snowdonia nation park is a peach !

Well ere' we are then. My first article in months and due to my inability to master WordPress, the edit went a bit off track. But still worth a read if you like a bit of mountain bike adventuring. Criticism and feed back welcomed. 
Wales is as synonymous with legends as it is rain and sheep. If legend is to be believed, if you sleep alone on the top of Cadair Idris you will awaken either a mad man or a poet. I’m clearly not fully a man of legendary characteristics, as I awoke the day after my ‘jaunt’ up Cadar Idris without any poetic fervour, I was however grinning like a mad man. This trip had been a long time coming and we had tried to get the weather and some very busy s...

Good place with nice food. Perfectly reasonable prices. Unlike the Pizza place in Aberaeron, they always get your order right. Nice and clean. The food is cooked in front of you. The staff are helpful and pleasant.
