Aquaponics offered at PTCC with Customized Training

Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (cultivating plants in water).  One environment for both fish and produce. It is a completely natural and healthy way to raise  food without the use of pesticides, fertilizers or other chemicals. 

Recirculating and self-sustaining, Aquaponic systems use a fraction of the water than that of traditional farming or gardening methods. Aquaponics is the wave of the future and will revolutionize the agricultural industry!

Bright Future Farms is partnering with PTCC’s Continuing Education and Customized Training Department  and will be offering introductory classes on Aquaponics .

The course will consist of 3 sessions ; 2 classroom and 1 greenhouse tour. Aquaponics is a great addition to the classroom, providing hands-on experience in STEM education, as well as agriculture.
