Farm to Table Conference

Farm to Table Conference, Pittsburgh PA
March 22-23, 2013 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center

Pittsburgh Aquaponics will demonstrate an Aquponics system at the Farm to Table Conference March 22-23 (this Friday and Saturday) at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

The demonstration will be located and powered by the nice folks at Zero Fossil where the water pump and light will get 100% of its energy from sustainable, green sources.

Also, we will be showing off some new Microgreens in the grow bed, courtesy of Rich Fishkin.

So, if you have not made plans already, come down this Friday or Saturday to learn more about Aquaponics. And come meet other farmers, food producers, non-profits, retailers, green energy companies, wineries, dairies, apiaries, chefs, wellness professionals and people who care about food.

You can see a list of exhibitors online.  There are speakers and cooking demonstrations both days. The schedule is on this website.

The food vendors will also have items available to purchase – bring reusable bags and prepare to shop for the best in local Pittsburgh food.

Bonus: Kids under 12 get in free!

  1. Hello,
    Hello my name is Jamie Mahle but my friends have called me Leo for many, many years now so please do as well. I was at the Farm to Table event this weekend and saw this in action for the first time and I am sold! I have 22 house plants and I have been looking to expand my growing and this would be perfect for me!!
    I am on disability with a leg problem which means I have a lot of time to really do this right and put the work and time that it needs. It also means I do not have a lot of start up capital so if you could talk about that in your reply please.
    I have a great place to set it up. I live in a three bedroom apartment with a laundry I do not need (washer and drier in the basement). There a water supply (washer and drier hook ups) and a sink. It is wide and deep. I would say 3 by 4 maybe 2 1/2 feet deep. It stays warm my furnace is in that room as well.
    Thank you so much for your time and help…

    Best Regards,
    Jamie “Leo” Mahle

    1. Hi Leo,
      Thanks for coming by the show. It was great because many people like yourself were excited about the possibility of doing Aquaponics in their basements, garages or spare bedrooms. It is all very possible. I will connect with you directly via email to give you specifics.
