Aquaponics 2: Intermediate and System Build Class
Taking the next step. What does my system need in order to thrive? How do I balance Fish/Plant/Microbe needs? Where do those needs overlap? What kinds of fish/plants can I grow? What are the different components I can use to build my system? How many fish should I use? How do I cycle my system? Our Intermediate class is hands-on and designed for those who have completed the Intro or equivalent and want a deeper understanding on how to design a system and what it will take to run it. We will delve into: biodiversity and bio-availability of nutrients; choosing fish and plant species; approved construction materials; pumps; aeration; water chemistry; plant/fish biology and health; pest management; stocking density; cycling a system; and smart design for maximum output with minimal input. After lunch, we will work together to build a small Aquaponics system, and you will receive a workbook with detailed schematics and item/cut lists to build your own home Aquaponics system. Includes: Lunch, System Build, Class Workbook, System Build Workbook.
