Are you interested in opening an Aquaponic farm, building a back yard system, or just curious to learn more about this exciting farming method? Then this is the perfect opportunity for you!
These two day classes will run:
July 13th & 14th, Day 1: 9am-5pm, Day 2: 9am-2pm
Day one: We will begin by learning all about aquaculture, from tanks to pumps to choosing the right species of fish. The second half of day one will focus on hydroponic horticulture, where we will cover everything from system design to crop selection and planting techniques.
Day two: We show you how to successfully merge aquaculture and hydroponics to get a fully functioning Aquaponic system! The course is a mixture of classroom style and hands on experience in our 13,000 square foot, indoor Aquaponic farm. Students will not only have the opportunity to learn from our experienced staff but also touch, see, feel, and work with these concepts.
A 45-minute lunch break will be taken each day; students are encouraged to bring a lunch, however there are several options for meals within walking distance.
Space is limited for this class! To reserve your spot today you must fill out the reservation form and return to Aqua Vita Farms, with a check or money order for the total amount due by dates listed above.
Consulting & Training
Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable, efficient, and productive growing methods in the world. It can be used for large, commercial ventures or to produce healthy, produce and seafood at home (for a fraction of the cost you’d pay at the grocery store).
Whatever your interest in Aquaponics, Aqua Vita Farms would be happy to help you get there.
From a one week to one month, hands-on training program designed for those who want to enter the field to a two-day introductory “crash-course” in the basics, Aqua Vita Farms offers training to suit your needs.
Aqua Vita Farms also offers Aquaponic system design and building consultation services. Once you’re trained, we can help you turn your dream into reality by working with you step-by-step to design and construct the system that is right for you. From budgeting to engineering to final set up, our professional and experienced staff will help to ensure you successfully achieve your goal – whether that is a small flood and drain system on your porch or the conversion of 40,000 square feet of abandoned warehouse into an indoor ecosystem.
