Intro to Aquaponics with Oko Farms: Class 1 (Science & Biology)

Examine the science behind aquaponics – a unique approach to sustainable agriculture – in this lecture and discussion led by Yemi Amu.

About this Event
Our first in a 3-part series, this class is our recommended starting place for beginners. We will examine the science behind aquaponics, diving into questions such as:

What considerations need to be taken into account to ensure a healthy operation?
How does each living organism survive and add value to the larger ecosystem?
How does the nutrient cycle work?
How is balance achieved?
You’ll learn all this and more, from the comforts of Agritecture HQ – a hub for urban agriculture entrepreneurship. Coffee/tea will be served.
