Rabbit manure growing media hydroponic system.

by Robert Miller
(Moscow, Russian Federation)

I'm going to do raised bed flood and drain tables with 50% rabbit manure 25% sand so it's drain well, and 25% bio-char. I've seen very little discussed about a growing media such as this. Naturally I'll have worm castings to keep the grow beds as fertile as possible.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this?

After considering Organic requirements
by: Robert Miller

After reading the requirements for Organic Certification and that there seems to be no problem whatsoever with 6 to 90 month old animal manure compost.
I'll compost and make full use or red worms to condition the compost. After 6 to 9 months or longer I'll use this compost to make my compost tea for my hydroponic system.

After further research
by: Robert Miller

After further research I've discovered my rabbit manure must be well composted for at least 6 months if I want to certify my produce as Organic.
My rabbit manure and bio-char will go into an IBC Container and flooded with water. I will oxygenate the water so my earthworms should thrive as long as the temp stays about 70'F or 20'C. This IBC should produce very good liquid organic fertilizer.
I'm learning to build the sensors so a single $12 Arduino and support components will measure and regulate the temp and oxygen levels turning up the heat, or turning up the air pressure when needed as well as sounding an alarm if something goes out of whack.
