Thanks for responding, and thanks for the advice! That is why I was considering WWOOFing at first. It would be a short, temporary first "taste" of this kind of work. Do you think that would be a good idea?
So you don't think pursuing a college-level degree in horticulture or sustainable agriculture, or something along those lines in necessary?

It goes over the components of what you'll need. Sizes vary, of course. The demo system is only 5 gallons of fish tank, so you'll probably want to build something larger eventually.
AP has 4 fundamental components: a fish tank, a grow bed, a pump, and symbiotic bacteria that convert fish waste (ammonia) to plant food (nitrate).
For me there is nothing quite like doing, so I always recommend setting up a small system to help you understand how the pieces fit together. Experiment small, then build big.
Oh, and generally solar and inexpensive don't go together unless you are able to source free solar parts.
