Urban Aquaponics 101: Growing Fresh Food In The City

For Earthship Enthusiasts this class is a must:

Envision growing veggies and having access to fresh food at home? Then this class is for you! We shall discuss the newly emerging field of aquaponics and shed light on how individuals, families, and communities can become more food independent!

Aquaponics combines aquaculture (raising fish) & hydroponics (cultivating in a non-soil medium) for the perfect synergy between the two systems. It can be done in kitchens, rooftops, backyards, and warehouses. It is the most water saving, energy efficient, fast and easy ways to cultivate food. Come learn the history, design, and application of aquaponics.

Cost: $30 General Public; $20 for students

    The Aquaponics workshop was incredibly educational and taught very well. I learned alot as a novice. My concern is being able to do it successfully on a small scale.

    How much does a aquaponics system cost to start up? Is there a way to do it with recycled materials. I am sure you that all my questions would be answered at the workshop too. Thank you
