4: Chad Hudspeth on Aquaponics for Commercial to Hobby Growers
An Introduction to the basics for any Aquaponics beginner.
Chad Hudspeth grew up on a dairy farm in north Texas and learned early on the true meaning of work and farming. He learned of aquaponics in 2008 and immediately began experimenting with different methods of growing fish and vegetables together. In 2012 he founded Endless Food Systems and began manufacturing a plug-and-play modular aquaponic kit that could be shipped to the lower 48 states. Endless Food Systems now provides complete turn-key kits for commercial and hobby growers. Chad regularly teaches aquaponic classes and has been on nationaltelevision, several radio shows and featured in many magazines concerning aquaponics. Chad also teaches our online Aquaponics classes for Urban Farm U.
