If you know Garden Pool, then you know we love Duckweed! This amazing plant is the backbone of our system and now we would like to teach you how to grow duckweed for yourself.
Duckweed, particularly Lemna Minor, is a simple floating pond plant that can help purify water, is edible for humans, fish, and chickens, and has nutritional value. It is a miracle plant and we will teach you everything we know about it!
You can grow using buckets and/or fish aquariums on the patio or windowsill! Join us for a FREE class at the Garden Pool to learn a few easy and affordable methods for the beginner in duckweed growing.
In this class you will learn:
- The basics of duckweed. What is so special about the tiny plant.
- How to grow duckweed to suit your needs
- How to take care of your duckweed in the off-season
We will have live duckweed, fish and running aquaponics systems so you can get a first-hand educational experience with the GP Team.
Everyone must RSVP on this page as space is limited, thank you.
We will also have the following items available for purchase and ready to go at a first come first serve basis:
- Nile Tilapia Fingerlings and Fry
- Nitrifying Bacteria
- GP Coco Bricks
- BSF Larvae
The Garden Pool is located in NW Mesa near the 101 & 202 intersection. The end of the light rail is conveniently located just 2 blocks (1.1 mile) from us.
Garden Pool now offers a FREE shuttle service to GP Events in our new GP Van. We can pick up anyone at the end of the Light Rail at the Park & Ride at Sycamore and Main St in Mesa. You must call GP at[masked] to reserve your spot on the GP Van if you want to carpool with us in the morning. We will be returning after our last GP tour of the day after the class.
We look forward to seeing you for this FREE class at the Garden Pool!
