Urban Aquaponics 101: Growing Fresh Food in the City

  • September 8, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • Capitol Hill

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

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
