Saturday, April 5th – 9 to 11 am
Aquaponics Workshop with MVM Farm Manager Lori Garton: Aquaponics is an innovative, sustainable growing system where fish and plants are grown together, mutually benefiting each other. An aquaponics system re-circulates the water, the fish produce a natural fertilizer for the plants, and the plants act as a natural water filter. Using an aquaponics system allows growers, gardeners, and farmers to reduce the use of our limited water supply and take advantage of the bountiful sunlight to grow food. Learn about this sustainable food system and how to produce vegetables like lettuce, sprouts, and herbs in your own urban aquaponics system. The workshop will be held at the Mountain View Market Farm in Mesilla (2653 Snow Road).
Cost is $15 for members/ $20 for non-members and space is limited. You must register online, over the phone, or in-store before attending the workshop at the farm.
