May 26, 10:00 to 17:00 - Build your own aquaponic tank
At Mediamatic we've been experimenting with making aquaponic tanks. In these tanks plants and fish live together. Aquaponics is a eco-friendly system in which fish feed the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. We want to share our knowledge with you and enable you to build your own aquaponic system at home. Want to join us for this workshop? You can buy your tickets on our website.
What we will do
We'll start the day with an introduction to aquaponics and an hour-long crash course in biology. Next, guided by our trainers, you will learn how to build an aquaponic tank from scratch. We'll have all the necessary materials at our space, where we will build the tank together as a team. By the end of the day you will know exactly what you need to build your own tank at home, and how the eco-system of the tanks and grow beds works.
The workshop takes place at Mediamatic Fabriek from 10.00 to 17.00 and costs € 50 incl. VAT. You can buy your tickets here. Please keep stopping by the Fabriek after the workshop to check up on the tank. Soon the fish, bacteria, and vegetables will thrive in the tanks and grow beds. Please e-mail if you have any questions. Directions on how to get to Mediamatic Fabriek can be found here.
