People who are already in line with your values and want to achieve the same things you have in mind.
You're much more likely to have the outcome you seek, because your growing organization cares only about accomplishing the vision you all are in line with.
Over time, an engaged and motivated base of followers is the single best way to earn more followers.
From my experience the majority of the time a growing operation has problems is because the leader doesn’t clearly lay out the vision and ends up telling their people what they want to hear vs explaining to them what the company needs to succeed.
Our Suggestion here at Green Joint Ventures is that you change minds indirectly, by building a tribe that influences via connections to others.
If you feel your growing operation is running into similar problems give us a call we can help!
Just like in the picture to the right, the fish will produce waste and the microbes & worms will convert the waste to fertilizer for the plants. Which then the plants filter the water that returns to the fish.
A hydroponic system is a method for cultivating plants without soil, using only water and chemical nutrients.
So when you combine the root meaning of the words starting with hydroponics which means “water working” and aquaculture “Raising Fish) you have “Fish working” and that is exactly what goes on when you grow your fruits and vegstiable in an aquaponics system!
If you sat down and told a 13 year old kid now a days that cigarettes were healthy for you, because a doctor said so. They would laugh and ask you what you were smoking. Then probably ask for some.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
It is important to know the definition of insanity, because once you know what it means you can then reflect on your own life and figure out if you are living in insanity”
Since I was a child I have been taught about the Food Pyramid.

Just like most of us I believed the educational system when they said, Drink Milk for strong bones, eat meat for big muscles, or you need salt in your diet! I have finally come to the realization that we should ask ourselves if that way of thinking is the most productive way to think.
“Manage by Outcome” Right?
We as a society have for over a half a century been managing by outcome. As a result more people are getting sick.
We as a society are looking for the most complicated way to solve our problems because we feel our problems are complicated.
I’m no doctor although as I get older I have come to realize that if I put cleaner fuel in my engine my car runs better. What I mean by cleaner fuel is Fruits and Vegetables. There are 3 levels of quality for Fruits and Vegetables. Your lowest level is Store purchased i.e. Safeway, Nob hill, Wal-Mart, etc. Their food is grown using N-P-K (petroleum base fertilizers), toxic pesticides, and environmentally impacting practices. The middle level is Farmers Markets. Normally Certified Organic and has more than just N-P-K, it also has some basic mineral deposits which helps us stay healthier. The highest quality is growing your own food. This is the healthiest because it keeps you active and you know exactly what is going into your food.
Could that be the answer to a healthy life?
Is that all we have to do? Stop listening to the Doctors, media and educational school system.
As I have gotten older and have been able to expand my knowledge in alternative education beside the stuff they feed to us growing up K – College; I have realized that just like with cigarettes, we have been indoctrinated into thinking that the food we eat is healthy.
If the food is so healthy wouldn’t these companies want to express that to us on how they label their food?
If you have any question on how to grow your own food or how to improve your health.
Homemade hydroponics – How to make a deep water culture (DWC) system and more.
From out experience, we recommend Hobby gardeners that want to grow year round indoor and out; normally use 2 types of hydropoonic gardens under grow light bulbs for indoor plants.
These 2 systems can be moved fairly easy indoor and out with a little bit of ingenity. If you hit a stone wall just give us a call and we will give you a few ideas to solve your problem.
One thing to remember when moving your plants indoor during the winter it is important to find a window facing SOUTH, this is easy. All you have to do if find the window that has the most light during the coldest parts of the year. By doing this you will beable to use a small size High Intensity Discharge light becuase you are still using the power of the sun.
The second most important thing to remember is to take time to become aware of the enviroment your plants are growing in. Just remember these key words “If it isn’t conforable for you, it won’t be confrontable for your plants”. If you take time to think about that quote, with in time you will improve your skill as an indoor gardener.
The third thing is mostly for people that have icy cold winters and burn their heater to stay warm. The High Intensity Discharge Grow Light (HID) give off a good amount of heat. While the light was burning you could duct the heat somewhere else in the home were the family mostly hangs out to keep warm.
These two methods are the methods we recommend because one system can grow larger plants i.e. tomato, bell peppers, and corn; while the other is better for lettece, spices, and herbs.
The Flood and Drain Method:
And the D.W.C. aka Deep Water Culture
are what we recommend for gardeners of all levels because of there simplicity.
The most important thing is to start growing something.
