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.

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, known for combining the sciences of Aquaponics & Permaculture. Rob Nash of Austin Aquaponics bringing over a decade of experience with large scale Aquaponic farming techniques and hybrids. Samanntha Rodriguez of EZ Farms & Fish. She brings beauty and abundance to backyard systems and beyond. Check back for updates and additional instructors and educators that will be joining us for this amazing information and experience packed course. Sure to be the largest diversity of instructors and hands on experience ever offered in an Aquaponics training!
Guest instructors include Brock Doleman of Occidental Arts and Ecology Center. Known globally for his work with watershed restoration and regenerative water system designs as well as the wealth of knowledge on aquatic Ecology and Permaculture. Jon Parr will be joining us to share his experience designing and creating California's largest commercial Aquaponics system, over 8 acres of Aquaponics in greenhouses!

* 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 - wether 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.
