Different grow methods to accommodate different crops
Plant health and lifecycle
Essential plant nutrients and their place in the aquaponic cycle

Doors open at 5:30 for social meet n' greet. Feel free to bring your own snacks or beer. Class starts promptly at 6:00 because we have a lot of learning to do!
Conversation and Q & A can continue past 7:00, but may have to migrate to a nearby establishment depending on daily building schedule.
Class is taught by Brian Filipowich, Director of Anacostia Aquaponics and Chair of the national Aquaponics Association. Class takes place on Cultivate the City's beautiful rooftop farm, above Jenks Hardware Store.
Hope to see you there!
