Introduction to Aquaponics (9 Hours) NEW!
This class provides an introduction to Aquaponics, the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the plants, and the plants filter the water for the fish.The third participants are microbes (nitrifying bacteria) that convert ammonia from the fish waste into nitrates the plants can use. Class will be held at the Earth to Sky Park.
