At De Ceuvel Aquaponic Workshops you will learn about the principles and the practicalities of this innovative closed-loop, urban farming concept. You will dive into the main theoretical and biological principles behind the workings of the system and you will get hands on experience with building an aquaponics system yourself.

The workshop will be hosted by Aquaponics expert Saro van Cleynenbreugel who has five years experience in building and maintaining systems at Mediamatic and has hosted a large number of workshops. It will take place at Metabolic Lab, a facility for sustainable urban innovation located at Cleantech Playground De Ceuvel in Amsterdam-North.

This is a two day workshop, but we provide a limited opportunity to join only on the Saturday or the Sunday. Metabolic Lab will provide you with coffee, tea lemonade and some snacks, and ask you to bring your own lunch or order at the Cafe on site.


- Aquaponics


Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines the cultivation of vegetables and fish. The best way to produce food in the city, because it hardly takes up any space. The fish poo feeds the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish. Not a drop is wasted.
