Grow Your Full Potential! Victoria Aquaponics Spring Workshop Series

Posted by Jess Brown on February 28, 2014

Aquaponics is HOT!

In simple terms, aquaponics is a recirculating system that raises fish and grows vegetables in one integrated living system.

This unique approach to growing food provides higher yields and requires much less labor and inputs than soil based farming.  Whether you’re a farmer or a home gardener, aquaponics provides fun and effective solutions for growing tasty local food. Join us in exploring the what’s why’s and how’s.
