Training

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
