Aquaponics Master Class

Murray and his team will help you make your commercial Aquaponics dream a reality. This course will equip you with a working understanding of operating systems and farm design. You will learn how to budget and financial plan your future Aquaponics farm, and will have a clear step-by-step marketing plan for your farm produce.

Just what makes Aquaponics work so well will be clearly explained. No more hunting around looking at dozens of YouTube clips, trawling through forums, reading endless blogs to try to glean the information necessary to plan and make your Aquaponic farm a reality. The information is right here in this 4-Day Future Farms Master Class. So much poor quality information is out there and how are you supposed to be able to tell which is good and which is just plain made up spin?

We have worked continuously developing and proving Aquaponics systems both home-scale and commercial scale since early 2006. When we started out there was very little information available about Aquaponics but being experimenters by nature we learned the hard way. We know with confidence what works and what doesn’t. Our company name “Practical Aquaponics” reflects our method of operation. If we have not proved it in practical terms then we do not teach or recommend it. Practical Aquaponics has manufactured and delivered hundreds of home Aquaponics systems. Our Future Farm designs are without equal. Our full-length DVDs have been viewed all over the world.

"I have been fortunate to have travelled widely around the world in the last 10 years, visiting and consulting on Aquaponics farms. This has allowed me to glean a massive amount of excellent, actual experiential knowledge that I will pass on to you. I started sharing my knowledge and experience by hosting Aquaponics courses in 2009 and since then have trained over 1200 students from over 48 countries around the world." Murray Hallam

Our training course is the best way of getting that reliable in depth information you need to plan your Future farm or improve the performance of your existing Aquaponics project. You will be able to build an effective, efficient ecosystem farm that will repay your training investment over and over again.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to make the break into a more sustainable lifestyle business.
