Aquaponics News – Update

Aquaponics Hybrid Urban Growing Systems by Sahib Aquaponics:  “Nano” System

The idea of building the “Sahib Nano Hybrid Aquaponics System” came to me when my son indicated that he wanted to have fresh herbs and lettuce but did not have the space to grow it in his University student room. He said that often he would end up having to throw out the Basil, Parsley or other herbs and green leafy vegetables as he could not use them before they went bad. He loved the aroma and taste of what was growing in our research farm. Well, here is one version of Sahib’s Nano Hybrid Aquaponics System. Now he can grow his own food locally and naturally without the use of harmful pesticides and chemical fertilizers, and he can eliminate waste by only using what he needs for the meal he is cooking.

We will share numerous designs and variations in due course. You are welcome to share your ideas and designs by submitting them to We will share them on photo gallery and write about them on our Blog. The best two designs in our opinion will be awarded a $100.00 gift certificate each towards cost of any of our future Aquaponics Workshops.




Over the course of the next few weeks, Sahib will share with you the endless possibilities of how to grow your own food locally and naturally without the use of harmful pesticides and chemical fertilizers by using these Aquaponics hybrid urban growing systems. These Aquaponics hybrid urban growing systems can be scaled to size and can be replicated. They can be modified to be operated off grid as well as expanded as the need arises. Such systems can be used to have fresh food at home, work or anywhere they are set up. They are excellent tools to use as teaching aids so that we can empower the future generation with the knowledge to grow their own food locally by natural means. Sahib’s Aquaponics hybrid urban growing systems can be the basis of feeding the family, the community as well as provide income to the urban farmer. Sahib will also share how such systems can be used in urban retail economy, both by food establishments as well as food/produce retail outlets to enable the consumer to purchase food that has been grown locally and by natural means. Food that is “live” (a new twist on the label “Fresh”), and the type recommended by most medical and health professionals as what we should be eating.


2012 Aquaponics training workshops by Aquaponics Urban Gurus

Next Aquaponics Workshop: March 10th & 11th 2012

Following the successful inaugural Aquaponics training workshops by Aquaponics Urban Gurus, Sahib Aquaponics will be holding numerous Aquaponics Workshops in 2012. These Aquaponics Workshops by Aquaponics Urban Gurus are an excellent place to learn Aquaponics and be empowered to build Aquaponics systems to grow organic food for their family without using harmful pesticides or chemical fertilizers, discover the potential to create another income source as well share such knowledge with many more to help provide sustainable solutions to the world hunger epidemic.

Sahib believes that such training should be affordable so as to enable all sectors of the society to educate and empower themselves in this wonderful way of growing organic food. He also believes in smaller class sizes (not to exceed 16 participants), so that the Workshop training can be personalized as much as possible. By being a participant in such Aquaponics workshops, you will really learn and be empowered to grow your own food locally and naturally.

Here is a recent e-mail from one of the Workshop participants…

“Hello Sahib,


I really enjoyed your 2 day Aquaponics class.  It was very informative and practical.  You made what seemed like complicated gardening into a fun learning experience.  Your explanations made it easy to comprehend the principles behind Aquaponics. Seeing your Aquaponics garden and your simple systems setup demonstration, removed all doubts.  Even though I am a beginner, I am confident that I can do this now.  It opened up a whole new world of providing healthy “organic” food for myself and others.  An excellent job done! I will recommend you classes to everyone.

Rajaji “

Sahib is using the profits from Aquaponics training workshops by Aquaponics Urban Gurus to fund the development of Aquaponics for the poor hungry world villages. He has set up a separate group for this called “Feed Hunger Now” (see link below). Will you help join Sahib…can we work together in this venture? What ideas do you have to help towards this goal?   

God bless,

Over the course of the next few weeks, Sahib will share with you the designs and pictures of Sahib’s Aquaponics Hybrid Urban Growing Systems.
