The Aquaponics Association mission is to promote the benefits of aquaponics through education and outreach. Some of the key ways we reach out are:
- Offering free tours of aquaponic systems during our Tour de Tanks, scheduled for May 15-18, 2014. If you have an aquaponic system and would like to participate, please sign up on our website.
- Participating in conferences and fairs. This year we presented at the 2014 Aquaculture America Conference in Seattle and the 2014 Philadelphia Flower Show. We'll also be at the Mother Earth News Fairs in Asheville, NC and Puyallup, WA.
- Putting on an annual Aquaponics Association Conference. The 2014 Aquaponics Association Conference will be in San Jose, CA on September 12-14, 2014. Our keynote speaker is Charlie Schultz, widely regarded the successor to Dr. James Rakocy. Farm tours will include Viridis Aquaponics near Santa Cruz, CA, and Ouroboros Farms in Pescadero, CA. Registration opens in April, so stay tuned!
