Training Course Duration: 2 days
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. They are taught by experienced Aquaponic gardeners and other professionals who are the “Gurus” in their field and who 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.
Who should attend?
Everyone! 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 field sessions. Classroom sessions will provide you with a basic knowledge of Aquaponics that will cover a broad range of topics and the Field sessions will allow you to gain “hand-on” experience on setting up a small Aquaponic system, fish selection and feeding, water chemistry, plumbing, pumps and aeration requirements, starting seeds and planting seedlings, as well as learning what it takes to operate the system on a daily basis. We want to empower you to grow food for yourself and your family. Grown locally and grown naturally without any harmful pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
