Our course programme for ‘Aquaponics’ begins with our first session at Rice Lane City Farm on 7 March 2015.
The programme is free to anyone over the age of 19 not in regular employment and we will provide free materials, refreshments, travel costs and – where necessary – childcare expenses. The courses are being offered as part of a project supported by the European Social Fund, the Skills Funding Agency and the WEA.
You’ll learn the basics of aquaponics – a system of growing plants using the waste products of ornamental or edible fish as a fertiliser. And you’ll learn how to run a project, get valuable experience of working in a team, and acquire a basic understanding of a wide range of useful skills – from construction to record keeping, from plumbing to plant cultivation.
So come along to Rice Lane City Farm on Saturday morning, 7 March, at 10 am to sign up for a course. More sessions will be added to the course programme to meet demand, and we’re planning to run sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays throughout March, April and May.
