Aquaponics Training Programs Offered For IDEAS For Us Members by Sahib Aquaponics
In January 2012, IDEAS For Us partnered with a local urban Aquaponics company — Sahib Aquaponics — to provide educational tours and professional training programs for students and community members.
Aquaponics is the joint cultivation of fish and plants in a man-made re-circulating ecosystem that allows sustainable natural food growing without the use of harmful pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The goal in these workshops is to empower people of all ages to grow their own food naturally, right in your own garden.
“Sahib’s training workshops by Aquaponics Urban Guru’s are a wonderful way to learn and gain knowledge and the skills to successfully practice Aquaponics” stated Chris Castro, Co Founder of IDEAS For Us.
