Learn Aquaponics

Aquaponics

Refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture with hydroponics.

Aquaponics is an ideal type of farming as it uses 90% less water than conventional methods, takes up a 1/7th of space, creates fresh and natural produce all year round, and can take less time to manage. With access to plentiful water and productive soil being a challenge around the world, these systems can be transformative. In the hands of an entrepreneur or organization, they can provide an income year round.

Our classroom

Our classroom is one of the best methods available; a mix of classroom learning and full immersion in working all aspects of a commercial greenhouse system. You'll learn about aquaculture, plant culture, thermodynamics, and then go out and ensure the fish are healthy, system measurements are within range, participate in our weekly harvests, help with local sales, as well as learn to build model systems.
