Urban Aquaponics 101: Growing Fresh Food in the City

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 way to cultivate food. Come learn the history, design, and application of aquaponics.

Cost: $30

    I wish I could come! I have toter almost setup and would love to trade for some advise to actually get going well and have my system deliver what I think it will. I would love to speak/work with someone who has a little more confidence than I do. I'll contact Trueblue as well. Thanks!
