Aquaponics 1 (2012)

After thinking of several concepts as the summer came, I started exploring the actual land and thinking about real things.

I consulted a local DIY guy and have accumulated some knowledge on how to better lay the basement for my small greenhouse.

I chose the part of the land right next to the roof of the house as this way the angle of the greenhouse roof can be matched and the snow in winter will not destroy it. This way also one could acccess the greenhouse from the back without getting rained on.

I had a blog where I logged the process of building with the help of my good friend Arseniy. The blog does not exist anymore, as I didn’t want to pay for the domain, but the photos remained.

As the project has finished I have come across a competition online where you were supposed to submit a video of a DIY structure in your backyard related to home grown food or related stuff. My friend Arseniy being a prominent video editor, has offered to edit the movie. As we have filmed the whole process of building, we had all the footage ready. Several days later, the video was made and it’s still on Vimeo. It’s in Russian (as the video was for a russian competition).
