OASYS is an open-source, reproducible aquaponics system that YWAM Emerge developed and now builds around the world. Aquaponics is a sustainable and efficient agriculture system that combines hydroponics (growing plants without soil) and aquaculture (growing fish). A variety of vegetables and leafy greens can be grown using aquaponics, and the fish can also be harvested for food. This training course provides the foundation needed to successfully build, operate, and run an OASYS system and aquaponics business. Part of the training will be in the classroom and part will be hands-on building and operating. As part of the training you will receive detailed manuals on how to build and operate an OASYS system. (Click HERE for more details about the OASYS system)

You can expect to learn about topics such as:

  • Horticulture

  • Aquaculture

  • Bacteriology

  • Day-to-day operations

  • Sales and Marketing

  • Growing management

  • Environmental factors

  • Hands-on building experience

  • And much more!

These trainings and outreaches have limited space available. Participants will be selected based on multiple factors.
