We are joined today by Chad Hudspeth of EndlessFoodSystems.com. Chad is a 5th generation farmer from North Texas. Growing up in a rural community helped him understand the value of being prepared since the closest town was a good 40 minute drive away.
Joining us along with Chad is his partner in business Greg Peterson from Urban Farm U. He believes that, growing your own food creates a happier, healthier life. It makes us feel better and contributes to a healthier planet. Our current food system is broken. The lack of nutrition, proliferation of environmental toxins, and average distance our food travels to our tables, has reduced its nutritional density.
This contributes to a stressful life and the potential onset disease that follows. By growing your own organic food, you can eliminate the toxins in your food, reduce your stress, and reconnect with nature — your source of true sustenance.
Today we will focus on aquaponics which is quite different from the better known Hydroponics. Chad is the founder of Endless Food Systems which manufacturers aquaponic kits. These kits can ship to the lower 48 states and are designed to enable the average person who know absolutely nothing about growing food to have instant success.
Chad has also been featured in several magazines and been on national radio and TV shows to discuss the advantages of aquaponics.
