Ever wonder about what it might be like to raise fish in a community garden that you can eat? That is aquaculture! Ever wonder how you could do this in a sustainable way that also allows you to produce plants? That is aquaponics!

We will cover the basic concepts underlying the use of aquaponics and its history and we will go in-depth in looking at the system at Frank White Memorial Garden, where The Brotherhood/Sister Sol has installed this system with the help of Oko Farms as a way to teach ecology, sustainability and urban alternatives in agriculture with their students through their youth development program.

Please RSVP online

This workshop will be facilitated by Nando Rodriguez (The Brotherhood/Sister Sol).
