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
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
Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable and productive farming
systems in the world. It combines Aquaculture and Hydroponics to

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

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
