Event Description

Do you have the Aquaponic bug, want to jump right in, but don’t know where to start? This is the course for you. Come to our facility in Longmont CO for a full Aquaponic Immersion weekend. During this course you will learn the what, the how and the why of aquaponics, plus participate in extensive hands-on sessions to build your understanding and skills.

I've watched dozens of videos on how to put together an aquaponics system, and it never "clicked” until now. Being here, watching a system go together in front of my eyes, made all the difference in the world. I can absolutely go home and do this now. I can’t wait! The Aquaponics Immersion Course is the best thing I could have possibly done to get my system launched and launched right.

We aim to minimize the time in class and maximize the time spent with demonstrating and learning through doing. You will walk away with new knowledge, practice and understanding, an aquaponics T-shirt as well as our comprehensive course materials and ongoing support.
