Aquaponics Training Graduation - Ukiah, 2010
Our trainings are intended to inspire students, providing them with the information, understanding, knowledge and experience needed to create Permaculture based "Closed-Loop" Aquaponics systems that are as self sufficient and regenerating as possible.
Aquaponics Training Graduation - Nicaragua
This valuable information is a combination of skills, knowledge and first hand experience gained though our own work and the successful examples of several other professionals operating Aquaponic farms, projects and training centers throughout the world!
All our Aquaponics trainings are instructed by Max Meyers and special guests. Max Meyers is a veteran Permaculture designer, consultant, teacher and Aquaponics specialist who has combined Permaculture with Aquaponics.

Whether you are a beginner, a backyard hobbyist, a homesteader or a skilled professional wanting to start a career in Aquaponics this course has something to offer. This course is will provide you with a solid foundation, in depth information, and hands-on experience for designing and building cutting-edge Permaculture based Aquaponics Systems, with a specific focus on Commercial Systems. Whether you want to grow food for you and your family, a small business or a fully commercial operation, this course will give you the foundational tools, information and experience you will need to support you in whatever Aquaponic endeavor you are interested in for years to come. At a time of global climate change, depletion of resources, pollution of water and huge losses of top soil worldwide, there has never been a more important time to learn about Aquaponics.
This training will be led by our incredible team of Aquaponics instructors, professionals and educators from around the world including:
Max Meyers of Nor Cal Aquaponics - instructor, known for combining the sciences of Aquaponics & Permaculture.
Rob Nash of Austin Aquaponics - instructor, bringing over a decade of experience with large scale Aquaponic farming techniques and hybrids
Jon Parr of School Grown and Fishnet Aquaponics - Guest instructor known for pioneering new methods, practices, equipment and understandings, many of which have become the standards of the Aquaponic industry today.
This course is sure to be one the largest diversity of instructors and hands on experience ever offered in an Aquaponics training!
A detailed Aquaponics Course manual covering all aspects of Aquaponics including:
* This training will include all of the above as well as a design element focus on how to design a system specific to your individual climate, ecology, dreams, and desires - whether it is for a small personal system or a more large scale commercial system. Our intention is to empower you with cutting-edge information to get started in this promising new Green Career of the Future, and technology of the ancient past.
By bringing Permaculture Design principles and practices into Aquaponics, we are closing many loops, inefficiencies, and energy drains that exist in more conventional systems, as well as integrating the system appropriately into the larger landscapes and ecologies it is a part of, making it a much more holistic and sustainable enterprise. Closed-Loop Aquaponics focuses on designing aquaponics systems that that produce as much of the system’s needs (water, energy, fish, feed, heat, gas, etc.) on-site and within the system itself as possible. Products of the systems can include; solar electricity, solar heated air, solar heated water, fish, prawns, vegetables, fruit, aquatic plants, algae, minnows, snails, worms, dry and liquid fertilizers, methane gas, and more. By using the Permaculture Design process, we learn to design systems appropriate to diverse climates and unique ecological niches to meet various needs, dreams, and desires.
