Dear Friends,

Wanted to pass on this announcement of upcoming Closed-Loop Aquaponics events.

On-line Webinar Overview (Thurs, April 11)
Weekend Workshop (April 13-14)
Advanced Training (June 6-9)

Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable and productive farming systems in the world. Aquaponics combines aquaculture and hydroponics to create a more self-sufficient, closed-loop system that uses only a fraction of the water, labor, and energy than other methods, while producing up to 10 times as much food! 

Combining Permaculture Design with Aquaponics creates more closed-loop systems appropriate to specific climates and ecologies that are even more dynamic, productive and regenerative. 

This approach focuses on closing loops and integrating regenerative solutions for each of the system's needs (water, energy, fish, feed, heat, gas, etc.), while generating additional outputs such as solar electricity, solar heated air, solar heated water, fish, prawns, vegetables, fruit, aquatic plants, algae, minnows, snails, worms, dry / liquid fertilizers, methane gas, and more.

Wether you are a beginner, a backyard hobbyist, a homesteader, or a skilled professional wanting to grow more food sustainably and for less work, closed-loop aquaponics has something to offer.

Consider coming to learn the technologies, how-to's, and trade secrets of Closed-Loop Aquaponics and to connect with an amazing community of like-minded people at one of the upcoming learning opportunities below.

Towards Resiliency,
