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. Our goal in these workshops is to empower you to grow your own food naturally, right in your own garden. Sahib will share his knowledge and use simple language taking time to explain the whole process so as to empower you to grow your food locally and grow it naturally!
Who should attend?
Whether you just discovered Aquaponics and are curious if you could use this method of growing in your own backyard garden, or are interested in community / urban gardening or larger commercial farming applications, this workshop should help you decide.
The workshop is divided into two segments – Classroom and Farm Tour. Classroom sessions will provide you with a basic knowledge of Aquaponics that will cover a broad range of topics including how Aquaponics works, what fish and plants can be successfully grown and do’s and don’ts to ensure success. The Farm Tour will allow you to visually see various Aquaponics food growing systems at work, see how Aquaponics creates a balanced ECO system and gain some “hands-on” experience in the different types of hybrid Aquaponics system. You will also learn how simple Aquaponics is and what it takes to operate a system on a daily basis.
