Event Details

Spend a day at our urban farm with us learning everything you'll need to know to become an aqua-expert! We'll provide a classroom lecture experience as well as a hands-on learning environment - so prepare to get messy... Tickets include lodging on Friday night and dinner on Saturday (unless you grab a "Local Attendees" ticket - then we're just feeding you;) ).

We'll run you through building a farm, the science of how it works, daily maintenance, plant and fish care, etc. You'll be free to ask questions and sit personally with an aquaponics expert to discuss your future projects.

All proceeds from the workshop will go towards our community development efforts!
