There is a growing desire within our urban populations to forge a closer connection to the food they eat. More and more people are buying locally produced veggies from farmers markets and Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) and others are beginning to cultivate their own food in the hearts of our cities. True Blue is here to help in these efforts by conducting classes and workshops on the power of aquaponics to build a future of local food abundance.

Envision growing veggies and having access to fresh food at home? Then this class is for you! We shall discuss the newly emerging field of aquaponics and shed light on how individuals, families, and communities can become more food independent! Aquaponics combines aquaculture (raising fish) & hydroponics (cultivating in a non-soil medium) for the perfect synergy between the two systems. It can be done in kitchens, rooftops, backyards, and warehouses. It is the most water saving, energy efficient, fast and easy ways to cultivate food. Come learn the history, design, and application of aquaponics.
