Garden of Eden Urban Farming™
Training & Careers
Hydroponics in the classroom
We train technicians, managers and entrepreneurs in methods of soil-free gardening. Small classes ensure personal attention. We expose students to a wide range of growing strategies and equipment and help them fit equipment to crop choices based on market research.
The opportunity is real and growing. Note that many more jobs and careers call for knowledge or skills in hydroponic agriculture in related industries like manufacturing, distribution, marketing and sales in both retail and wholesale companies.
While our programs are not formal training for work, the skills and knowledge imparted are steps in the direction of a personally and professionally rewarding occupation.
Validation of Career Opportunities
The following positions were open and advertised as of December 3, 2017 on a national job search board with wages and salaries ranging from $12/hour to $6,000 per month.
Our "Eduponics™" program is designed for schools from junior high through college. It introduces students to hydroponic farming in the context of a laboratory as small as a bookcase all the way up to a commercial scale business that can supply the school's own needs or be a real-world experience in business and agriculture programs. Training can lead to careers in this emerging field and in related support industries.
Eduponics provides equipment, curriculum and teacher training, plus optional ongoing consultation and system maintenance, depending on the needs of the individual school. More information
