Welcome to Arnavon
Helping People Grow

Many years ago, when our children were still quite small, we began the adventure that has become Arnavon.  Over the years we've raised rabbits, chickens, goats, and fish, not to mention guinea pigs, lizards, cats, dogs, and one little cockatiel. We've gardened conventionally and nonconventionally and we've saved the abundance of our harvests by canning it, drying it, and freezing it. We've learned plenty over the years, unfortunately, some of it the hard way.  It is our hope that what we've learned we can share with you so that you don't have to make the same mistakes we've made. That is why we are begining this web site and formalizing our classes, so that more people can benefit. Please be patient as we bring our life experience to these pages.

While we still have lots of in ground gardens, our current focus is aquaponics.  Aquaponics is a cross between aquaculture and hydroponics.  In a nut shell, you feed the fish, the fish feed the plants, the plants clean the water, which goes back to the fish.  It is a very exciting, relatively new, technology, and you'll find lots of information on it in the aquaponics section of our website.

So, welcome to Arnavon.  We're glad you found us.  Come on in and stay a while.
