Eventbrite - Practical aquaponics training: how to build your own system at home

Our 1-day practical aquaponics training course will leave you with the skills to build your own functioning aquaponics system at home. Within our small class size our dedicated tutors will guide you through the key principles and theories before you put these into practice in helping to build a running system on the day. Constructed from readily available components you will be able to build this or a similar system at home. This is an entry level course with no experience of horticulture of aquaculture required.

There will be no powerpoint presentations but you will be provided with an illustrated course handbook to take home expanding on all of the topics we cover, as well as lots of hands on experience.
