Inner City Sydney Montessori School Aquaponic system. Constructed over a two-day ABC Gardening Australia film shoot, this railway sleeper pond and cascade with two growbeds has provided a range of educational opportunities to students, staff and parents. This AP system is media-based constant flow, flood and drain; the left growbed is actually a bathtub dressed with recycled decking, using a ‘loop siphon’; the right growbed is custom made of aquaplate steel with a food grade coating manufactured in Sydney, and uses a bell siphon to regulate growbed flooding and draining.
