Saturday, October 27, 2018
Our first in a 3-part series, this class will examine the science behind aquaponics.
- What considerations need to be taken into account to ensure a healthy operation?
- How does each living organism survive and add value to the larger ecosystem?
- How does the nutrient cycle work?
- How is balance achieved?
You’ll learn all this and more, from the comforts of AgTech X – New York’s only co-working lab dedicated to sustainable food & agriculture (coffee included!)
