Come learn how to grow spirulina, a microalgae that the UN once called “the best food for the future.” Well, the future is now and growing this spiral-shaped microalgae is an easy way to introduce this nutrient-rich food into your life. Our 60-minute workhop will cover the basic necessities for how to cultivate spirulina.

We will examine the materials needed, compare methods, and look at both the ‘classical’ open pond systems as well as the high-tech bioreactors designed to grow algae under more controlled conditions.
