Hi there folks. My name’s Rob.

I’m from South East Queensland in Australia and I run Rob Bob’s Backyard Farming & Aquaponics channel on YouTube.

I post clips on how we go about growing & raising our own food on our urban block, along with various DIY builds for the backyarder including animal raising for our bees, aquaponic fish, chickens and composting worms.

I’m passionate about growing food and have been doing so in one way or another for the past 20 years. I made a move into urban farming after purchasing our house in Ipswich in 2002.

I started off with home built water saving wicking bed gardens & quickly added fruit trees, chickenscompostingvermiculture, and aquaculture and aquaponic systems.

I have many “How To” clips based around these topics in playlists on our YouTube channel & also like to post the odd growing guidegarden harvest & how we prepare some of the produce we pick from the patch and aquaponic system.

In the past I’ve had folks offer donations to help with projects around the patch but have always felt bad as I had nothing to give in return. Now that I’m on Patreon I’m able to offer yourself and those generous folk exclusive content, as well as early access to posted YouTube clips & other perks that I plan to add in the near future.

These future perks may include Hangout sessions, one on one question time, merchandising (not sure about that one yet), discounts on goods sold through our blog store (Aussies only sorry folks) & prize draws that may include seeds we’ve saved from our own garden or by the way of seed companies in your country and whatever else I can come up with. So watch this spot.

If you’d like to learn more about me you can check out the brief bio below or come and check out my clips on YouTube.

P.S. There will be more perks coming soon ??

ABOUT ROB
Rob Gray grew up in a rural town in northern New South Wales Australia before moving to south east Queensland where he has been growing his own food for the past 20 years. He made a move into urban farming after purchasing a house in Ipswich Queensland in 2002.

The initial water saving wicking bed gardens quickly expanded to include fruit trees, chickens, composting, vermiculture, and aquaculture and aquaponic systems.

With family still living in New South Wales, Rob started to share his urban farming activities through his Bits Out the Back blog site and videos posted to his YouTube channel Rob Bob's Backyard Farming.
In as little as 5 years his YouTube channel subscriber base had grown from just family and friends, to over 70,000 viewers from all over the world & his urban farming videos have received over 11 million views..

Rob passion for food sharing has expanded to the group Share the Seed Australia, a seed saving & sharing group on Facebook. The aim of the group is to share seeds people save from their own plants with other like-minded Australians. The group encourages people to start growing their own food or to support those that are interested in growing plants they never would have thought to grow before.
Through this group, Rob was proud to assist the creators of Share the Seed America in setting up their own Facebook seed sharing group.

Rob has a qualification in Permaculture Design from Geoff Lawton and uses his experiences and knowledge to apply these principles where he can.

You can thank Bianca for that last bit.   :D
