Eric Maundu is growing the food he eats every day in his own urban ecology experiment! Revolutionary ideas that he has put together include: using the internet to help monitor his mini-ecosystem and using gravel rather than soil to grow his plants!

Aquaponics is a type of food production system that symbiotically combines traditional agriculture to grow aquatic animals with hydroponics to grow plants in water.
