Aquaponics in Oregon: Discover the Growing Potential Conference

Aquaponics is the marriage of hydroponics (growing food in water) and aquaculture (growing fish) in a sustainable closed system. This highly sustainable closed-loop ecosystem creates the optimum environment for fish and plants to thrive naturally, therefore, growing pure, chemical free food free of pesticides and fertilizers. This weekend workshop is intended for anyone interested in learning more about how we can grow this emerging green industry here in Oregon. We will hear from some of the top commercial growers, innovators and educators in this emerging green industry and discover what the challenges and opportunities aquaponics presents in rural, suburban and urban areas. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to network, connect and learn from these pioneers as well as discover how to get involved in this growing movement. Venue:
