    This is a good balance of information and excitement. It’s heartwarming and inspiring to get to know of real, everyday people making a difference. And in such a down to earth way.

    This looks really great and is completely new to me. I have some questions about it I hope someone can answer: What do the fish eat? And, how fish friendly are such basins? Regular fish aquaculture is quite damaging to the fish population since they use wild fish to the farm fish. How does it work here? By what I see in this video these fish have in no way a natural habitat. Would plants and such in the water make it impossible for the system to work?

    Absolutely love this!
    I read an article in YES! magazine a year ago about a family in Chicago, I believe. You may want to check some of the back issues, excellent source of info and the community work on that as well.
