“Of all the courses I have EVER taken, and there have been many, this course is by far the most exceptional!” - Steve Golin

We have taught this course eight times now and it keeps on getting more and more successful.  How do we know?

“Congratulations! Great curriculum in scope and detail. Wonderful camaraderie developed. Honest, transparent I feel like I can come back and ask more. The willingness to share the very intimate business details with the class is refreshing and incredibly valuable. Provided written materials ensure we have a reference to keep and use over time. Well done!”  - Kathleen Blackistone

The Green Acre family farm is the model that this team will teach students to replicate. A successful Aquaponics Farm since 2010, Green AcresGreen Acres does this for a living every day. Recognizing the value of integrating media bed growing into raft (DWC) technology, their hybrid aquaponics design optimizes nutrient density by allowing the additional metabolization of valuable solids typically removed from DWC systems. Why remove the most valuable element in an aquaponic system when it can be utilized to produce better and more abundant growth? This growth translates into one thing, more sellable product and elevating your bottom line.


 “Wow! I wasn’t expecting so much detail on the construction and financial aspects. Loved the empowerment afforded by the hybrid system build.”


The Business of Aquaponic Farming

Elevating your bottom line, now that’s a concept any business person can appreciate. Ordinary people can certainly farm, but they also need to have the tools and skills to manage the business and market their product. We give our students real farm revenue and expense numbers, production estimates, and financial pro forma’s.  You will also leave with a practical, manageable approach to daily farm admin and marketing that takes advantage of all of the incredible tools of today’s “new media.”

“Thank you for delivering an excellent course! All the speakers spoke from a point of knowledge, humor and a love for aquaponics that really showed.” – Michael Johnston

The Syllabus

We have designed this course to be a logical progression that builds on itself over the four days. You will be handed a complete manual during class registration that includes all the presentations, plus even more detailed descriptions, drawings, and financial data. Morning sessions will be held classroom style in a very comfortable classroom location. Each morning session will start with an aquaponically focused set of lessons, followed by a set of business lessons. Then we break for lunch, which will be provided from a local cafe by the Green Acre course. Afternoon sessions will either be at Green Acre’s or Colorado Aquaponic’s farms, depending on the location. These sessions will be broken out into smaller groups so that all students get front row, hands on time with their instructors. Each group will rotate through all segments.
