Learn about Aquaponics in North Florida!
North Florida Aquaponics is offering hands-on training in Aquaponics! Aquaponics 101 will guide the seeker on a journey into self-sustainability and growing organic food. We offer several options: orientation tour (Wednesday, Thursday) and five day intensive (schedule).
Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable and productive farming systems. It combines Aquaculture and Hydroponics to create more self-sufficient, closed-loop, systems that use only a fraction of the water, labor, energy, etc. that other methods use. Combining Permaculture Design with Aquaponics creates an even more sustainable, dynamic, productive & regenerative system. In our aquaponics training you will learn some of the most cutting-edge pioneering aquaponics systems designed by various successful experts in the field, and gain a solid foundation from which to create your own Aquaponics System appropriate to your climate, ecology, dreams, & desires.
