      What is Aquaponics?

      Aquaponics is one of the most sustainable and productive farming
      systems in the world. It combines Aquaculture and Hydroponics to
      create a truly self-sufficient closed loop system that uses only a
      fraction of the water, labor, energy, etc. that other methods use.
      Combining Permaculture Design with Aquaponics creates an even more
      sustainable, dynamic, productive & regenerative system. In this
      intensive training you will learn some of the most cutting edge
      pioneering aquaponics systems and gain a solid foundation from which
      to create your own Aquaponics System, Farm & thriving Green Business.
