2 Day Aquaponics Training / Workshop

INMED South Africa

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn about the exciting field of aquaponics from the world’s leading experts. INMED Partnerships for Children has installed dozens of commercial and small-scale aquaponic systems in South Africa, Jamaica and Peru to provide year-round, climate change-resilient crop production for families,  communities, schools and businesses. An innovative and highly intensive food production technique, aquaponics combines aquaculture (fish farming) with hydroponics (soilless crop growing) in a closed system that is easily scalable. Benefits include no chemicals or fertilizers, crop production at least 10 times higher than traditionally cultivated plots of equivalent size and up to 90% less water consumption.

This workshop is ideal for small-scale farmers, those who work in the development sectors and government extension officers who want to take the leap into aquaponics.
