The inaugural year of Aquaponics Fest received glowing reviews. Here are just some of the lovely things people have had to say about the festival.
Thanks for all the work you and your crew put into it – I feel stimulated to try some new things at my place, and more enthusiastic than ever about the potential for AP to change the world! - Rohan Roy
Fantastic, wonderful, terrific, amazing!!!!! Seriously now, I truly enjoyed being there. I wish I would have had the time and mental stamina to see just about every presentation. There were some I had to miss because I had to choose. Great work. – Anonymous
The Festival was done well, and we had a great time. Participation was just right for the space, and the presentations, booths, guided tours, and store to support those ready to use the knowledge they gained. It was great seeing old friends, and making new ones. - SchoolGrown
Thanks so much for an awesome event! You’ve done it again!
I had a blast and learned A TON despite the fact that I’ve been doing Aquaponics for years now (and Hydroponics for many years before that). - James Fry
The Festival was a huge success and everybody we spoke with not only learned important things to further their systems but the connections, fellowship and fun for the festival was just awesome. After attending other Aquaponics events that were significantly overpriced, stuffy and not as well thought out, Sylvia offered a real grass roots, down to earth and more realistic event that was also laid back, comfortable to attend and attuned to Aquaponics participants not just the presenters. We look forward to next year! Thanks again. - ASC Magazine
I had a ball and learned tons. What an amazing line up of speakers. I was blown away. I don’t say this lightly, but that’s probably these most informative and useful conference I’ve been to in my life! Every speaker was excellent and had tons of useful information. I soaked it up like a sponge. - Dan Chiras
Congratulations on your inaugural event. I had a fantastic weekend and loved it all. As usual I have come away energized to have a go at all the suggestions. Thanks to you, your team and all of the presenters. - Maureen T
