In this 2-day, intensive Aquaponics class, you will not only learn why Aquaponics is the future of local food production but also how to do it yourself.
Aquaponics is a soilless food production system that uses fish to provide fertilizer for the plants, while the plants filter the water for the fish. In this closed- loop, symbiotic relationship with edible fish and plants, more food can be grown per square foot than any other method, which makes it well suited for urban farming. Best of all, it uses 95% less water then conventional agriculture, it can exceed organic certification standards, and YES… the food is absolutely delicious!
With an emphasis on developing an applied knowledge base, we will cover the fundamentals of aquaponics. By the end of the course, you will discover a sense of confidence to begin your own system at home. The course is designed to be a prequel for additional courses soon- to- be available that will address permaculture based principles and the process of scaling up for social enterprises and other commercial applications.
The class will take place at Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnets (WESM) with field trips to other locations. WESM is located at: 7400 W. Manchester Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90045 [Directions]
