Introduction to Aquaponics (2 hours) 8th September 2016, 2-4pm Springwood, Blue Mountains.
Aquaponics is a combination of hydroponics and aquaculture. Aquaponics uses up to 90% less water, grows plants twice as fast, and yields more in the equivalent space than growing in soil.
On this short course we will teach you the the fundamentals of aquaponics so you will be ready to either start building your own systems or perhaps take our 2 day course to further your knowledge even more.
Basic design features of aquaponics systems
Which fish to grow for your climate
What plumbing is required to run a system
Requirements the plants and the fish
What to bring
Note pad, pen and something stable to write on (clipboard etc)
What others have said about our workshops:
I had a great time...I like hands on stuff and I feel much more confident about making compost...I knew it was important for my garden and now I can do it...and using the paper and straw and pocket planting is how I am going to finish of my verge.
We loved the workshop very much and found it practical and useful.

Practical, thought provoking. Made creating a garden seem like a realistic goal, even for a beginner. Lots of info, but didn't get bogged down in the detail. I really enjoyed it!

Length was perfect. Split between theory and practical was great. The lunch was brilliant.
Thanks Daniel. It is always great to see how people manage their own blocks. The reinforcement of good planning before execution of a (great) idea is always appreciated.
Excellent – more, more!
