NEXT General Meeting May 16th,  7:30 PM, Willow Glen Library, 1157 Minnesota Avenue, San Jose, CA 95125

Our speaker will be Cal Hansen. His topic will be about  “Aquaponics”.  Aquaponics is the most sustainable form of food production.  It refers to any system that combines convenAquaP_056tional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment.  In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrifying bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients, and the water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system.

Upcoming Events:
