Urban Aquaponics 101: Growing Food in the City

  • Feb 24, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

Urban Aquaponics 101 Syllabus:

-What is Aquaponics: Defining and Outlining
-The synergy of Aquaculture & Hydroponics
-A Historical Perspective: Ancient and Modern
-Aquaponics Engineering 101
-Aquaponics Biology 101
-Build & Maintain a system
-Aquaponics & The Future of Food

Cost: $30 General Public; $21 UW students
