AP101 is a personalized course that includes plenty of time for individual questions and incorporates a lot of personal anecdote. We guarantee that you will not be bored, and that you will leave with a lot of enthusiasm, ready to get started building your own version of the “perfect garden.” Following a lunch break, we move to the adjacent workshop, where the class will have a hands-on opportunity to learn how to build two different styles of simple aquaponic systems. The detailed instruction will lead you through the necessary steps required to build each version from start to finish. At the end of the session, each participant may choose to take home either manual, including a complete parts list. You will have all the information and experience you need to embark on this exciting DIY project. REGISTER HERE

We’ll Help Your Start Growing

100_2211If you would like to experience the thrill of growing your own fresh produce, now is the time to enroll. Come fall, you will appreciate the opportunity to harvest cucumbers, melons, zucchini and eggplant from your own garden. Then, as summer heat gives way to more moderate temperatures, plan to add the crops that thrive late into the fall: Tomatoes, kale, salad greens and herbs. Ask us about the year we were still picking cherry tomatoes fresh from the grow bed in late November! We’ll even give you a recipe for Green Tomato Pie, just in case you have pick them in a hurry before the first frost! 

This is our most popular one-day class, but it will not be offered again this summer until August 8. Now is the time to enroll, so that you can begin your aquaponic adventure. Reserve your place now for the June 27 session, or contact us at info@greenphoenixfarms.com if you have questions.
