Aquaponics for Sustainable Growth


6/11 – Aquaponics for Sustainable Growth


SKU: CLWAQ Categories: ,

June 11, 12-2pm, 12 person capacity

This beginner- to intermediate-level class will cover the basics of aquaponics: the environmental benefits; the interactions between the many physical, biological, chemical, and technological components of the aquaponic system; and the cost-benefit analysis of a commercial aquaponics operation. You will gain first-hand experience witnessing the many components of an aquaponic system in action in an aquaponic greenhouse and 2 active CEA (controlled environment agriculture) vertical farm grow rooms. The class is suited to adults 16 years of age or older that are able to be attentive in class and can physically move around tight spaces, while being careful not to touch plants or grow-room components (access ways in the greenhouse and grow areas are about 2 feet wide and there are some obstacles (pipes, etc.) on the floor that cannot be moved).

Brian Rusk owns FarmWild, a small-scale sustainable farm focusing on the health and well-being of animals and the environment, leading to healthier people and a better world. FarmWild is one of few aquaponics farms in the area. Brian has become an invaluable resource to our region and regularly presents at the annual Aquaponics Association Conference.

*Please note that this event takes place OFF-SITE at Farm Wild on Smith Rd. in Bellingham. Address upon registration.

Shipping Information

The Nursery at Cloud Mountain Farm Center is primarily a nursery for local and regional walk-in customers. We do have a limited shipping season for out of the area customers.

USPS ZonesWe ship plants from mid-February to late April to all states within the U.S., as weather and state agricultural restrictions permit. Because we are unable to guarantee the success and health of your plant outside of the U.S., we do not currently ship to other countries.

Since we do not use cold storage, some plants only ship best at certain times or are only available for local pick-up. If you are in the Midwest, East Coast, or Alaska, we may not be able to ship dormant plants if we are concerned about the quality of your plants upon arrival.

We only ship orders once a week, with packages leaving our local post office on Tuesdays. We will communicate your scheduled shipping date in your order confirmation. This allows us proper time to package your order carefully and account for any sudden weather changes.

We ship by USPS Priority Mail to help ensure your plants arrive quickly and in good health. All shipping costs are calculated based on USPS shipping zones. To learn more about your shipping zone, visit the USPS website.
