“This workshop is intended to provide information to people interested in growing fish and vegetables or other plants together in a closed system,” said Troy Luepke, AgriLife Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources for Comal County.
The first part of the program will be presented from 6-9 p.m. Dec. 14, then repeated from 9 a.m.-noon Dec. 15. This part will address aquaponics terminology, system design, economics and marketing.
The second part of the program from 9 a.m.-noon Jan. 10 will be a hands-on demonstration of how to build a simple system.
“This is a good opportunity for participants to get hands-on experience with the construction and maintenance of an aquaponics system, along with getting information on the components needed to ensure successful system operation and production,” Luepke said.
He said the program will address many practical aspects of aquaponics, including what type of fish to use, and how to measure pH, nutrient concentration, nitrate levels and more.
The $15 registration fee, which covers both parts of the program, is payable by cash or personal check at the door.
To RSVP, contact Janet Sweet at 830-620-3440 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
