2013 Commercial Aquaponics And Solar Greenhouse Trainings In New York!

We have a new training format we’re totally excited about, and New York will be the first time we show it to the world! We’re holding our highly-acclaimed five-day “Commercial Aquaponics And Solar Greenhouse Training” June 10th-14th (Monday through Friday), 2013. We’re also holding a new, one-day “Indoors, Vertical, And Backyard Urban Aquaponics Training”, which is our first BENEFIT event (yay!, of many, we hope!), on Saturday, June 8th.

The One-Day Benefit Event:

This benefit is being co-sponsored by two non-profits: The Point, which is a community development corporation located in The Bronx; one of the two poorest congressional districts in the nation; and Feed Hunger Now, a Florida non-profit dedicated to ending world hunger through teaching people how to feed themselves with aquaponics. The benefit training is being held at The Point’s facility in The Bronx.

The proceeds of this one-day benefit will go to constructing and operating a permanent aquaponic solar greenhouse located at The Point, to benefit residents of the Bronx. People we’ve trained will be offering ongoing aquaponics courses using this greenhouse as soon as it’s operational. Expenses for this one-day training will be subtracted from whatever donations are received, however, we are NOT charging any fee for teaching, for contributing our materials, or for our airfare, hotel, or daily expenses for this day. It’s just our way of giving back to the community of aquaponics growers who support us and the aquaponics movement.

The cost for the one-day benefit training is $100. When you sign up for the one-day benefit training, you will immediately receive downloaded copies of our Micro System package ($99.95), TableTop Systems manual ($49.95), and Epoxy/Fiberglass/Plywood Tank Manual ($49.99), a total value of $199.89. The live training itself adds even more value to your choice to attend. You will be registered for the one-day benefit, and all you need to do is show up at 9:00 am with a photo ID to enter.

The Five-Day Commercial Aquaponics And Solar Greenhouse Training:

This five-day course is being held from Monday through Friday to allow you to travel during the weekend to the course, get the most out of the course, and not need to be away from your busy life longer than necessary. Our Commercial Aquaponics and Solar Greenhouse course, with its emphasis on profitable commercial aquaponics in energy-efficient greenhouses, is unlike any other aquaponics training available anywhere.

You can sign up NOW for this June New York training. Although our normal price for this complete training is $2,495, we are offering a special discount of $1,000 off, or only $1,495, until April 25th. Then the discount will be $500 off, or $1,995, from April 25th until May 25th. On May 26th and afterwards, the price will be the full $2,495. If you want to save, sign up now! This training is being held on the island of Manhattan, at Stepping Out Studios, 37 West 26th Street, New York, NY 10010.

This five-day training includes our $995 DIY Commercial Aquaponics package, $998 DIY Farmer’s Market Aquaponic Solar Greenhouse package, and new $295 DIY Commercial Tilapia Hatchery manual as course materials, plus much more! You receive $2,288 worth of DIY manuals as well as the live course and hands-on experience. As soon as you register for the course, you receive a free downloaded copy of our Micro System package (worth $99.95) so you can increase your aquaponics knowledge before the course and get the most out of the course. What a deal!

Click here to register for the five-day Commercial Aquaponics And Solar Greenhouse Training from June 10-14th, 2013, at Stepping Out Studios in The Bronx, New York.

We are limiting this New York training to 100 persons, so that everyone will get a chance to have all their questions about aquaponics, greenhouses, and making a career with them answered. Sign up early if you want to attend! We are headed to Tennessee the next week, and will not be able to schedule the next New York training until much later in the year!.

As soon as you register for this course, you will receive maps of the training location, area hotel information, and your free downloaded Micro System manual.

Here’s the description for the new, comprehensive, 5-day “Commercial Aquaponics and Solar Greenhouse Training”:

1. We begin with the three-day Aquaponics Technology training: it’s everything we know about the techniques and methods of growing with aquaponics. Each day will have its own hands-on segments. In addition, you will spend the second half of Day Three building several 12-square-foot TableTop Systems from scratch (under our expert eyes, of course). More details of the Aquaponics Technology course here.

2. You can take one of these 12-square-foot TableTop systems home, assemble it there, and begin growing with aquaponics immediately, even in the middle of winter! The cost of the kit is only $550; much smaller “kits” from others start at $1,295 and go up from there, not including shipping. This is a complete kit, with fish tank, water and air pumps, airstones and airstone tubing, growing troughs, prepainted rafts, pots, potting mixture, seeds, bacterial inoculant, and mini water test kit; all you provide is the water and the seeds! These systems can be used either outdoors, or indoors with simple and inexpensive lighting arrangements (which we will describe and demonstrate during the training). They can also be moved from indoors to outdoors easily during good weather.

3. The one-day Aquaponic Solar Greenhouse course is everything we know about energy-efficient greenhouses, and includes information and complete CAD plans showing how to build a Chinese-style aquaponic solar greenhouse; along with more information on how to convert existing greenhouses to be as energy-efficient as possible. We even show you how to purchase and erect a good used greenhouse for ten cents on the dollar!More details of the Aquaponic Solar Greenhouse course here.

4. The one-day Commercial Aquaponics Training is everything we know about the various ways of making money with aquaponics, from CSA’s to Costco, from wholesale to retail, from selling simple produce to producing value-added products, including Food Safety Certification and Organic Certification.More details of the Commercial Aquaponics course here.
