Our LAST EVER Commercial Aquaponics And Solar Greenhouse Training In Texas!
You are registering for all or part of our LAST EVER 5-day Aquaponics Technology, Solar Greenhouse, and Profitable Aquaponics Training in Dallas, Texas, from Monday July 15th to Friday July 19th, 2019. This is the industry-standard commercial aquaponics training that turns out profitable students.
Course limited to the first 25 signing up! (Our classes are small so you get the most out of your training, and have all your questions answered).
Because there is so much interest in aquaponics in the Lone Star State, we are going to hold our standard 3-day Aquaponics Technology Training, with a 4th Solar Greenhouse Technology day, and a 5th Profitable Aquaponics day, at an easily-accessible hotel near the DFW International Airport, from Monday, October 22nd to Friday, October 26th, 2018.
VETERAN’S DISCOUNT: We appreciate the people who defend our Constitution; we offer a 50% discount on EVERY product we sell to military personnel: whether active duty or retired, even Coast Guard! However, if we published signup links for veteran’s discounts, EVERYONE would be a vet, and we’d spend the rest of our lives trying to get them to send us their ID cards.
So, to take advantage of this discount, email me (Tim) at [email protected] (take out the SPAM!), with a photocopy of your military ID card, and tell me what you’d like to purchase; I’ll email you instructions on how to do it. We appreciate our vets, and not just with a bumper sticker!
This course consists of the following three segments:
Days 1-3; Aquaponics Technology
This training gives you all the aquaponic technology we’ve developed over the last eight years. It includes comprehensive information on: vegetable varieties that grow well in aquaponic systems; planting, germinating, sprouting, and nursery techniques for vegetables; low-cost and efficient tilapia breeding, egg hatchery, fry care, and fish nursery techniques; the USDA Organic Certification process for aquaponics farms, aquaponics system design and construction from 10 square feet up to 100,000 square feet; site design and greenhouse design and construction; and aquaponics system construction techniques for systems from 2 square feet in size on up to systems that are thousands of square feet in size.
There’s a LOT more information on our webpage Texas Aquaponic Technology Training. If you have any questions about this course, please email us at [email protected] As soon as you sign up, you will receive a free download of our Micro System DIY manual to study before the course, plus a free download of our E-Book covering tabletop systems: “Aquaponics The EASY Way”, and we will email you complete directions to the course location and area lodgings.
Day 4; Aquaponic Solar Greenhouse
This training gives you all the information you need to successfully build and operate your own energy-efficient Aquaponic Solar Greenhouse, or to adapt an existing conventional greenhouse to be as energy-efficient as possible. There’s a LOT more information on our webpage Family Solar Greenhouse
Day 5; Profitable Aquaponics:
This is the fifth day of our training, and contains everything we know about making a profit with aquaponics, from selling at Farmer’s Markets to selling to Big Box stores, to how to get free government help with your farm. If you know all about making money and running your own business, you may not need this day; however, adding this “Money Day” to the training is only $500 additional. You also get to video record or voice record your course if you wish! Click here to find out more about the Profitable Aquaponics day of the training.

1. Our Commercial DIY manual ($999 by itself), plus the Tilapia Hatchery manual ($299 by itself), plus 6 “D”-sized sheets of CAD drawings for six different sizes of aquaponics systems, plus the Micro System manual ($99), plus the Fiberglass/Epoxy/Plywood Tank manual ($49), total value $1,446.
