The North Texas Aquaponics Meetup Group Message Board › Aquaponics build this Saturday at Cedar Hill High School
Adam Cohen (organizer of the DFW Aquaponics meetup group) is hosting an aquaponics build this Saturday, please check out his meetup here.
The class description Adam sent me reads as follows:
On this coming Saturday, November 10th, I will be hosting a hands-on workshop presentation and build of a large scale Aquaponics system in the Agriculture greenhouse located at the Cedar Hill High School. This system will be built from scratch using lumber and pond liner, and will be a hybrid media and raft system. Meaning that the fish tank will flow into a series of media beds where the solids and fish waste will be processed and de-toxified into nutrients for the plants. From here, the water will flow into a long sump that will act as a secondary grow space using Rafting. This is where the plants will grow directly into the nutrient water and will only be supported by a styrofoam board.
The planned times for this workshop will be from 9am to 3 or 4pm. Individuals are welcome to come for any part of the workshop and a participate as much as they would like. There is no official cost for this activity, but we will be collecting donations (a suggested donation of $5-10 per person) for the further development of the Cedar Hill Future Farmers of America chapter. With a donation of $30, you will receive full plans and materials for the system as built in the greenhouse.
