Alec's Aquaponics Education and Training
Organized by: oleg kouznetsov
EVENT DATE Jul 10, 2015
Currently there are no complete Bachelor degrees specifically in Aquaponics being offered in my state of Arizona, or any other state from my search. There are a limited amount of programs available around the world. In order for me to secure a strong grasp on this topic, I have to invest my time in pursuing workshops, seminars, certificates, diplomas, and associates degrees. Most of these mentioned programs do not have any sort of financial assistance available, and can cost a lot of money. This will be a huge, expensive, and lengthy undertaking, especially with my limited income and time. My goal is to raise enough money to cover the costs of trips, tuition, books, lodging, and all other necessities so I can quickly achieve a profound understanding of this rapidly growing field. The end goal of this educational pursuit is to open a non-profit for an Aquaponic greenhouse. This greenhouse will serve as a local educational platform as well as provide a percentage of sustainable crops and seafood to food organizations in the community. From this, I hope to develop an inexpensive, hi yielding, sustainable system that will enable companies or individuals to operate with next to no ecological impact. There are many emerging companies around the world pursuing methods to do so, but there are many more ways to improve on the current science. With your help, I will be able to gain access to education many times faster than if I were to do it on my own. Thank you all for reading!
