Aquaponics Facts
Aquaponics uses up to 90% less water than conventional farming does
Aquaponics is energy efficient: It requires up to 1/3 of the energy  
other farming systems use.
Aquaponics can have up to 8 to 10 times more vegetable production in  
the same amount of time and area than conventional gardens or farms.
Labor can be reduced as much as 40%, while useful byproducts are  
created that can be used to farm other crops, trees, soil, water, and  
energy.
A permaculture inspired system produces all of the systems needs  
(water, energy, fish feed, heat, etc.) on-site
Products of the system include: solar electricity, heat, fish, prawns,  
vegetables, aquatic plants, algae, snails, worms, fertilizer, even  
methane gas.

Course Description

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 an even more  
sustainable, dynamic, productive & regenerative system. In this  
intensive training you will learn some of the most cutting edge  
pioneering aquaponics systems and gain a solid foundation from which  
to create your own Aquaponics System, Farm & thriving Green Business.

Permaculture and Aquaponics focuses truly sustainable closed-loop  
systems are created that provide all the needs for the system with in  
the system itself. Max Meyer's focus is on aquapionics systems that  
that produce virtually all of the system’s needs (water, energy, fish,  
feed, heat, gas, etc.) onsite! Products of the Meyers systems include;  
Solar electricity, Solar heated air, Solar heated water, fish, prawns,  
vegetables, fruit, aquatic plants, algae, minnows, snails, worms, dry  
and liquid fertilizers, even methane gas!


Biogas Digester Workshop

Biogas is a naturally produced fuel, capable of powering stoves,  
lights, refrigerators, and anything that natural gas or propane can  
power.

In this workshop you will get complete information about how to  
understand, successfully make and properly use biogas (Day 1), as well  
as how to make simple, effective, low–cost digesters. You will learn a  
good deal about the tools and techniques required to build fairly  
large as well as smaller digesters (Day 2). Everyone who attends the  
first day of class will get a copy of The Complete Biogas Handbook  
(which offers a much-praised view of everything concerning biogas).  
Those who attend the second day will get a CD with a heap of wonderful  
information, including more than 2 megabytes of information about how  
to build all kinds of biogas digesters.

The first twenty who attend both days will leave with their own small  
Biogas Digester!
