Introduction to Aquaponics – $30/person
TBA – late January 2017
The goal of this 3-hour workshop is to give you enough info to decide if aquaponics is right for you, how to get started and where are the best sources for equipment, supplies and more detailed information.

This class covers:

What, Why, Where, When and How’s of Aquaponics, including the different types of systems; pros and cons; plant and fish choices and advice based on our years of experience and local conditions.

Intermediate Aquaponics Class – $30/person

Aquaponics is both gardening and aquaculture, and both can have challenges. Come learn how to take care of common pests and problems, as well as how to expand your growing season, crop choices and production.

Synergistic poly-cultures, seed starting, seed saving, harvesting, nutrient recycling,  and “What to do with it now that I’ve grown it” will also be discussed in this three hour class.
