Backyard & Small Urban Farming

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’s training workshops by Aquaponics Urban Guru’s are a wonderful way to learn and gain knowledge and the skills to successfully practice Aquaponics. Experienced Aquaponics gardeners and other professionals teach them. They are “Gurus” in their field and are willing to share their knowledge to empower you to grow your food locally and grow it naturally! They use simple language and will take their time to ensure that you understand and learn.
