Event description
Find out all about growing vegetables and fish together in this clever gardening system.

About this Event

Aquaponics combines hydroponics and aquaculture in a no waste, closed loop system where fish manure acts as the fertiliser for growing veggies. Set up correctly, backyard aquaponics can be more efficient than regular gardening; it uses less water, produces more crops per metre and crops can grow faster than in a regular garden. Not to mention that you could also have your own supply of fish and yabbies to eat.

Our workshop presenter, Gürkan Yeniçeri, will walk you through the basics of everything you need to know about setting up and maintaining your own system, from swirl filters and pumps to wicking beds. Gürkan will also share his tips and tricks for reducing running costs, including how to make your own fish food and fertiliser. There will be plenty of time for more complex questions as well.

Please kindly note that tickets cannot be transferred to other workshops. You are welcome to pass your ticket on to another person.

Please observe good hygiene and social distancing during this workshop and do not attend if you have been feeling unwell. If you are sick and need to cancel, please contact us for a refund.
