What you will do
The workshop will start with a tour through Dijkspark and the Aquaponics Greenhouse in which Saro wil give a thorough introduction into the aquaponics system. What are the advantages of this ecosystem? how does it work? what plants can you grow in it? and how can you build it yourself? After the introduction, you will build a mini version of the system to get a good understanding of the materials, building techniques, and the inner workings. You will leave the workshop with all the know-how to build your own aquaponic garden at home, and to start growing plants in a sustainable way! (We are recycling this workshops materials, so you won't take the miniponics system home)
What is aquaponics?
Saro van CleynenbreugelSaro is coördinating the Aquaponics project at Mediamatic. In 2014 we started to build the aquaponic system and since then Saro has strongly contributed to transform the system into a serious urban oase in which we conduct research into the urban farming system, and grow herbs and vegetables for our restaurant. He says: "I prefer working on projects that evolve the consciousness on this planet. I know we can do better. We just have to realize the importance and the logic of doing so".
