Aquaponics allows people to take charge of their own food production not only for their own personal fulfillment but for the betterment of their communities and the environment.

If you are just getting started, have more questions than answers or are tired of trying to figure it out online, we offer several one day workshops for every level of interest.  All of our workshops are held in North Denver at Flourish Farm, a 3,200ft² community scale aquaponic farm inside The GrowHaus; an experiential education center, urban farm and marketplace focusing on providing fresh, nutritious food to a community considered a food desert.
