The stated purpose of this web site is "to share the vision and progress of Faith and Sustainable Technologies (F.A.S.T.) and provide information to those doing similar work to break the cycle of poverty and dependence prevalent in the developing world.”

This website offers useful technical links and downloads for technical publications from various sources related to subjects such aquaponics, aquaculture, animal husbandry and vetiver grass. One of the most helpful resources is the free Barrel-Ponics instruction manual written by Travis Hughly (President of F.A.S.T.). This manual, offering an abundance of descriptive images, effectively shows how to build a simple and productive barrel-ponics system using common plumbing fittings and plastic barrels. To access two versions of the manual, click on the following links:
