How 1 MILLION Pounds Of Organic Food Can Be Produced On 3 Acres.
UPDATE 26th July 2011 -The response we have received from this short story is amazing, but created many questions from subscribers who needed further information. We have since looked into this and are happy to share with you detailed information on this amazing organisation called Growing Power. It would appear that there are many subscribers of Wake Up World who have been tasked with a similar project in their local community (though perhaps not on this scale) and we trust that the new article will be of use to those who required further details.

NOTE: I can't wait to try this here at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. We grew oysters years ago via Aquaculture in Pescadero, CA, and I can't wait to try fish and vegetables here now. Plus we can help all the people around the lake in the many villages that do not have access to healthy, organic or sufficient food. What a wonderful benefit for all concerned! God bless people like this who do such good works for the world.
I am going to try and get a pdf transcript of this video made so we can use it with people that don't have access to computers or internet. I believe they are using "Talapia" fish. I found a lot of info about growing fish in 55 gal barrels, and lots more about Tilapia fish.
Tilapiines are also among the easiest and most profitable fish to farm. This is due to their omnivorous diet ...
