Seventh Generation Solutions held its first ever Aquaponics Workshop. There was a great turnout, and we had an incredible time building DIY systems with you guys. Here are some photos and highlights from the event!
Aquaponics, despite popular belief, is actually incredibly easy for anyone to set up and maintain! We set out on a mission to prove how simple aquaponics can be by teaching the community through a family friendly, interactive workshop!
About Our Workshop:
Have you been reading our articles, but are still on the edge about aquaponics? Come see for yourself how simple this sustainable farming practice really is! We are now hosting FREE Aquaponics Workshops at SGS HQ in Delray Beach, Florida, to teach people how much fun aquaponics can be. These events will be held at the beginning of every month, so stay on the lookout for our announcement emails! We are proud to be teaching the community how to create sustainable practices in their homes, in fact we are so excited that we are offering these workshops at no charge. Bring your friends and family with you – everyone is welcome to join the Seventh Generation Solutions family!
So what exactly will these workshops entail? Hosted by SGS CEO and Founder, Mason Silvia, these workshops will be centered around building an aquaponic system. We’ll provide you with all the materials necessary to get started, and together we’ll walk you through how to create a system step-by-step. Along the way, we’ll discuss the importance of each step and how the system functions. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask our aquatic specialist, Ron Sieber, any questions you have on how you can further develop your system. To learn more about the benefits of this gardening practice, take a look at our aquaponics page.
We had a great turnout at our first workshop, and thank you to everyone who came out to support us! As always, we loved having an opportunity to educate you on aquaponics and its many benefits, and we hope that this has been an important first step to a more eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle for you and your family.
Customize your Own System!
Our workshops are a great starting point for understanding how aquaponics works, but your imagination is the limit when it comes to designing systems! If you’re inspired to design a larger system of your own, check out our custom systems page. We can help you to bring your ideas to life – customize the size, shape, and style of your system. We build both indoor and outdoor systems, so whether you’re looking for a stunning home piece or a garden large enough to feed your whole family, we’ve got you covered.
Though we are proud to finally host our own hands-on workshop for the aquaponics community, we will continue to participate in many other programs as well. In the past, SGS has held lectures on the state of the Florida Everglades and participated in community health festivals. Be sure you are subscribed to our email list to be the first to hear about our latest events. Until next time, happy harvesting!
