Learn how to install an AQUAPONICS system

March 21, 2016 @ 9:00 am - March 26, 2016 @ 12:00 am

£100 – £200

Our colleague Jack Lennon has been working hard on learning everything there is to learn about AQUAPONICS. He has designed a system and we are ready to install it.
Jack will share everything he knows about it and together you will install the system in our polytunnel.
By the end of the week, you will have a proper understanding of how to the system works and how to set it up.
You will receive a parts list so that you can replicate the design elsewhere.

This week will give you a chance to experience permaculture life in a working small farm.

Price is £100 – £200 sliding scale, according to income, bursaries may be available.

Please note that we kept the price low, because we would like you to work 2 or 3 hours a day on the farm too, helping us with the daily tasks. We value your work as part of a fair exchange and this will be a valuable learning experience for you too.

The aquaponics will be build in our polytunnel. The rest of the week will be an outdoor living experience.
If you want to stay the night, you will need to bring a tent, or we can lend you a simple one. If you prefer not to camp, we can try to find you a room to rent, locally.

Places are limited to 4 people.
Food is included in the price.

You are welcome to arrive on Sunday 20th

Please don’t hesitate to ask questions.

The system will look like this. With 3 grow platforms and one fish container.
