Aquaponics Workshop @ Festival of Cools

October 10, 10:00 to 18:00 - Learn to build a vertical aquaponics farm

At Mediamatic we're in the know about aquaponics: a sustainable food production system that combines the cultivation of vegetables and fish. We continue to share our knowledge by organizing workshops that enable you to build your own aquaponics system at home. Want to join? Buy your ticket(s) online.

What we will do

Aquaponics is an eco-friendly system in which fish feed the plants and the plants clean the water for the fish. We start the day with an introduction to aquaponics and a crash course in biology. Next, guided by our trainers, you will learn how to build a vertical aquaponics farm from scratch. By the end of the day you will know exactly how to build your own system at home, and how the eco-system of the fish tank and grow beds works.
