We’ve been running workshops at our display centre for over a year now and they’re proving to be very popular. They are hands-on workshops that allow participants direct interaction with aquaponic systems, fish and plants. In a very short time you’ll learn the basics about how to set up and run your very own system.

Backyard Aquaponics runs workshops at our display centre once a month. Our workshops have been specifically designed to provide participants with clear and concise information that relates directly to a home user, building and operating a small scale aquaponics system.

Our workshops are run by highly experienced aquaponics instructors, individual instructors on each workshop may vary, but include:
