Aquaponics: Essential Elements to Create an Ecosystem for Plants

March 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Aquaponics is more than a growing trend. It is a burgeoning industry that is expanding to all corners of the globe. This highly sustainable ecosystem creates the optimum environment for fish and plants to thrive. Using only 10% of the water that is required in conventional agriculture, this growing technique creates pure, chemical free food naturally.

In this three hour class, discover what the essential elements are that make aquaponics grow and how you can get involved in this growing revolution at home and locally. We’ll cover the following areas:
– How aquaponics works
– Aquaponic components & system construction
– What kind of fish and plants you can raise
– Creating a habitat to grow (water chemistry, minerals and nutrients, and controlled environments)
– How aquaponics performs against hydroponic and conventional agriculture
– The future of aquaponics

There is a suggested contribution of $25 per person.
