Aquaponics for Beginners
This two hour session is intended for those who are familiar with aquaponics but want a more in-depth understanding of its concepts, and will provide participants with a greater understanding of aquaponics practices while covering different types of aquaponics systems.

Led by Plant Chicago's aquaponics staff, this will be a two-hour session conducted on-site in our aquaponics farm, with a hands-on focus.

Workshop topics will include:

- Growing practices
- Types of fish and plants suitable for an aquaponics system
- Materials for aquaponics system construction
- Common types of aquaponics systems

Aquaponics is a method of farming that symbiotically combines fish and plants in a continuously cycling water-based growing system. This system mimics an ecosystem and significantly reduces water, fertilizer, and pesticide usage.

Further, the system can be based indoors, making it a year-round growing option that can be placed close to the site of consumption.
