These are backyard Aquaponic Training classes in a backyard setting.
There are many aspects to operating an Aquaponic system in a backyard so
be aware that training at "Commercial" Aquaponic facility is not the
same and you will lose much information that can be learned from a real-world
AquaponicAustin Training Classes are informal, hands-on, training sessions which teach students many different aspects of personal Aquaponics. The Classes are held in our backyard training facility, and
since it has never been done before, we are also conducting
extensive research and development of Aquaponics systems for use
specifically in Texas. __________________________________________________________________
