Ceres Greenhouse Solutions, in conjunction with The Aquaponic Source, will be organizing an aquaponics course where participants can learn about a well-designed aquaponic system with the most energy-efficient greenhouse environment possible.
The course is intended for families, the prepared, retirees, the health conscious, non profits, commercial growers and anyone else interested in growing more food using less resources.
What participants will learn:
- How to leverage the "greenhouse self-heating" phenomena with the ground-breaking Ground to Air Heat Transfer System (GAHT).
- Where to put thermal mass in your greenhouse and why putting it in the wrong place can be catastrophic
- A dirt cheap (yet commonly overlooked) step in greenhouse design that is actually KEY in increasing heat retention performance. This applies to simple hoop houses AND 10,000 square food commercial greenhouses alike
- How to use "strategic glazing" to optimize light transmission based on climate, crops, and available materials
- Exactly when to ventilate your greenhouse throughout the day based on climate and humidity
- Which materials take up no greenhouse space and hold 5x more thermal mass than water
- How to design and layout your aquaponic system to maximize use of space and energy
- Participants will also receive building designs and plans for a backyard energy-efficient greenhouse that can be combined with an aquaponic system.
