Taught by Caleb Warnock and Logan Lyons, a leading expert in aquaponics! Aquaponic gardening is based on nature. In its most simple form, Mother Nature creates a self-sustaining system in which water, fish, and plants combine to help each other. The goal of an aquaponic garden is to mimic nature. There are many advantages:
  • aquaponic gardens use far less water
  • need no purchased fertilizer
  • create naturally rich, sustainable, healthy soil
  • grow larger, more productive plants, which produce more food
  • can produce harvestable fish
  • dramatically reduce the need to weed with no-till methods
  • provide a peaceful water feature for the garden 
  • bring the joy of having fish to the backyard garden
