At Green Acre, we grow food in the newest, freshest and most green way possible. It’s called
Aquaponics produces both fish and organic or chemical free fruits and vegetables, in a dynamic, man made, pond-type ecosystem. It can either feed just you and your family or it can be part of feeding a community. It’s the farming of the future!
You’ve heard of the Food Revolution, now be a part of the Farm Revolution! At Green Acre Aquaponics we have started a Farm Revolution and we are changing the face of agriculture, one small farm or backyard at a time.
How can you be a part? It’s easy! You can do it yourself like we did and we can teach you how. Check out our Farm Revolution site for the most comprehensive training available on creating and operating a small family farm and its taught by those that farm and do aquaponics for a living everyday!
Want to start out small and learn how to grow food for yourself, your family or friends? Attend one of our Backyard Aquaponic Trainings and learn how to build our HomeHybrid system and how to grow food!
We teach everything you need to know to get growing, whether small or large!
Why farm with Aquaponics?
- People want locally grown and naturally grown clean food and we do just that in our aquaponic system.
- We sell at local farmers markets, to restaurants, our own buying club and more. It’s simple. There is a demand and it can be filled with aquaponically grown goodness!
- Local economies thrive on this model. Family farms disappeared from the American landscape decades ago and we think that aquaponics is the key to repopulating that need. Small family farms sprouting up everywhere can begin to relocalize our food supply and also invigorate local economies.
- Aquaponics uses less than 10% of the water used in traditional soil based agriculture, is less petro-chemically intensive and does not require the land mass traditional ag does. In fact it can help reduce the 90% of the freshwater resources that agriculture uses. Its a perfect solution for many of the issues we face growing and getting our food.
At Green Acre we are committed to advancing aquaponics through education and practicing sustainable farming methods.
Gina Cavaliero, the Managing Director of Green Acre, is also the Co-Founder and Chairman for the Aquaponics Association, an organization created last year to help advance and promote aquaponics. At the Aquaponics Association, we are working towards helping farms understand how to best deliver safe food, raising consumer awareness about the benefits of aquaponically grown produce and fish and just getting the word out about aquaponics. Everyone can do aquaponics and should grow at least some amount of their own food. Please check out the Aquaponics Association and consider joining us. Its one more step in the Revolution.
Green Acre’s Complete Training Course!
Our training format is the most comprehensive aquaponic training available anywhere for those wanting to start an aquaponic farm for profit.
Its because our approach teaches how to replicate what we do at the Green Acre farm every day and we are joined by Sylvia Bernstein of The Aquaponic Source and JD Sawyer from Colorado Aquaponics and Flourish Farms to do it. We have partnered up with the author of the best book written on Aquaponics and yet another commercial aquaponics farm to deliver the best class available and taught by aquaponic professionals that make a living doing aquaponics every day.
Both Green Acre and Colorado Aquaponics operate commercial aquaponic farms with real labor, real costs and real every day experience. Also the theory, plans and direction on how to replicate the Green Acre hybrid system that integrates DWC with media bed growing is not available anywhere else! We also provide our students with real farm revenue and expense numbers, production estimates, and financial pro forma’s and business planning guidance and a template. We want to be sure our students have all the tools they need to operate not just a farm, but a business.
Be sure to check out the curriculum on our Aquaponics Training page and the testimonials from our last classes. You don’t have to just take our word for it, take our students! Want to talk to some? No problem! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a contact list of past students.
