FREE WORKSHOP: Introduction to Aquaponics

Introduction to Aquaponics (2 hours) 26th May, 2-4pm

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.

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!

We loved the workshop and learnt a lot

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!
