Aquaponics Courses and Classes
Take an Aquaponics Course or Class at our Colorado Aquaponics Learning Center!
Aquaponics is an incredible growing technique that will certainly play an important part in the future of world agriculture – and the future can begin now in your home! Learn how to build and operate your own system – the theory, the skills and the practical knowledge – from the experienced professionals at The Aquaponic Source. We wholeheartedly believe in what we teach, and we seek to share our knowledge in a way that is professional, inviting and inspiring. You won’t find an Aquaponic Learning Center with courses that are more comprehensive, honest and useful! Our courses are designed in aggregate to give you all the knowledge and the skills you will need to produce healthy fresh food in your home. Our diverse teaching team is drawn from the fields of mechanical, civil and environmental engineering, includes a master plumber and veteran experts from the indoor growing industry, (including Sylvia Bernstein, the author of the original, bestselling Aquaponics text: Aquaponic Gardening, A Step by Step Guide to Raising Fish and Vegetable Together). And we do so without being academic. We are about teaching you what you need to know to succeed. Classes are taught in our specialized learning center and make use of our manufacturing space, a variety of working display systems and our on-site, comprehensive collection of aquaponic supplies. We endeavor to have every avenue covered, every question answerable, everything you need and every lesson not only taught but displayed – so you can see it happening and understand how it works. Class sizes are limited in size and the learning continues after course completion through our community site. We offer courses of varying length and that are targeted to what you want to learn and your level of knowledge. We don’t want to muck around – the world needs food that is vibrantly fresh, independent of the current food distribution infrastructure, environmentally conscious, sustainable, free of dangerous chemicals, deliciously nutritious and grown by real people in communities. This is the right place to learn what you need to know to get started, and we would be honored to share this journey with you!
I want to send along my sincere thanks for a great time at the Immersion course at the end of April. Jarrod and I really enjoyed ourselves and left feeling very confident in our new adventure. Jarrod arrived at the course as my grunt, he left as excited about it as I am. It certainly is a testament to the wonderful knowledge you and your team passed on to us last month. We were thoroughly impressed with the weekend and the immense knowledge your team so willingly passed along.
