Description

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.

The course will be held at The GrowUp Box in Stratford.

Sam is passionate about growing food in cities and both studied and practiced architecture before his first built project went on site - The GrowUp Box. This is the UK's first aquaponic farm in a shipping container and he has since co-founded GrowUp Community Farms to build more aquaponic systems and help teach communities to run them.

Hugo used to be a physics teacher before retraining in botany and plant science. He loves plants and is a passionate teacher. As well as helping others learn about aquaponics, Hugo also helps to design and build both small and commercial scale aquaponic systems.
