Water + Fish + Plants
Join the movement to grow sustainable food in an aquaponics system.
Aquaponics is an ancient farming technique in the middle of a modern remake. This ecologically efficient system uses water, fish, and plants to maximize growing space, water, and fertilization. Learn from experienced aquaponics professionals how to set up and maintain a flourishing aquaponics operation firsthand at the Farm on Ogden, a state-of-the-art facility in Chicago. Take an in-depth look at system design, function, construction, and fabrication methods specific to aquaponics at your home, farm, or school. These hands-on courses are designed for diverse audiences, including professional growers, entrepreneurs, teachers, and students.
