GYO GREENS Farm uses a sustainable farming method which combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals - in our case, fish - in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. All produce is grown naturally using standard organic practices.
Here are some of our aquaponics education topics:
Our education program is only for students wanting to complement their STEM curriculum with projects at our site.
Please note we do not offer commercial aquaponics training.
