Practical Tips & Tricks to Designing, Installing & Maintaining an Aquaponic System

Feeling excited to start your ‘little modern farm’ project? Wouldn’t it be wonderful having a cosy & lush edible garden and fish tank in your home.
It just seems like a BIG challenge to quickly learn how to grow plants and at the same time learn how to rear fishes with no Green Fingers and no Brown Fingers either. Many are not willing to risk too many failures and waste time relying on hear-say and feeling lost.
Many people think that it is impossible for a Beginner to set up a successful Aquaponic System at home. This could be due to the following reasons:
  • I don’t have green fingers. I am a plant killer !
  • I am not so good with Fish Rearing too !
  • I’ve been trying for yearsssss and I’ve failed many times !
  • No matter how hard I try, my fishes and plants die so easily !
  • I want to succeed, but I really need good advice and guidance.
Sometimes we just need a good and practical tip or two.  Even better, step-by-step guidance from an expert who has been there and done that.
Wouldn’t it be good if you could have endless supply of ‘FREE’ food,  which is truly ORGANIC for your family.
YES YOU CAN !
There is no need for you to take years of trail and error in Aquaponics.
We have the JUMPSTART workshop you need.
Participants will get to learn directly from our skillful trainers through the many demonstrations and farm visit.
In just 1 day, participants will learn most of the important Aquaponic techniques and practical tips for growing both plants and fish together.
This workshop will provide detailed knowledge and step-by-step instructions to designing, installing and maintaining an Aquaponic system at home. Every participant will receive hands-on practical tips for navigating the world of Aquaponics quickly and confidently
