What if there was way to produce an abundance of organic food using up to 98% less water, while producing up to ten times more food in the same amount of area and time? What if you could achieve this using 1/4 the amount of energy, in a system that is totally scale
ble, does not require fertile soil, saves you time and labor, makes you a good living and is incredibly sustainable? Well the exciting news is that such a system of farming exists! It’s called Aquaponics and is a combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics. It is one of the most sustainable and productive farming systems in the world! At a time of global climate change, depletion of resources, pollution of water and huge losses of top soil worldwide, there has never been a more important time to learn about Aquaponics!
Sound too good to be true? Then join us for this introduction and learn how Permculture based Aquaponics can produce large amounts of Organic food using only a fraction of the resources, time and enegy needed in other methods of farming. All this, in a system that produces all it needs within itself!
Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable and productive farming systems in the world. It combines Aquaculture and Hydroponics to create a truly self-sufficient closed loop system that uses only a fraction of the water, labor, energy, etc. that other methods use. Combining Permaculture Design with Aquaponics creates a truely closed loop system that is even more sustainable, dynamic, productive & regenerative. In this introduction you will learn about some of the most cutting edge and pioneering aquaponics systems in the world and gain a solid foundation from which to begin your own Aquaponics System, Farm and/or thriving Green Business. This course is a great place to begin your education while gaining invaluable experience in Permaculture based Aquaponics!
Permaculture & Aquaponics
By fusing Permaculture and Aquaponics truly sustainable closed loop systems are created that provide all the needs for the system within the system itself. A Permaculture focus on aquaponics systems can produce virtually all of the system’s needs (water, energy, fish, feed, heat, gas, etc.) onsite. Additionally all wastes produced by these system become resources and opportunities used to support, maintain and improve them. Products of the systems include: harvested rainwater, solar electricity, solar heated air, solar heated water, fish, prawns, vegetables, fruit, compost, worms, insects, aquatic plants, algae, minnows, snails, dry and liquid fertilizers, even biogas!
This introduction to Aquaponics with Applied Permaculture includes: a detailed exploration into Aquaponics, its design, functions, adaptability, uses, variations and improvements. We will touch on many field formulas, calculations, estimates, guidelines, detailed construction plans, piping schematics, Permacuture design integration and so much more. This course is intended to give you an in depth introduction to truly integrated regenerative Aquaponics systems. In addition, all your questions relating to Aquaponics will be answered by Max Meyers of Nor Cal Aquaponics.
