We are less than two months away from Putting Out Fruits at Kentucky State University, September 20-22.
Our Conference Team is busy reviewing presentation proposals, analyzing conference surveys, and drafting a program that will advance aquaponics for growers large and small. And we want you to be there!
Our fruity theme is more than just words. The conference will produce: videos of expert panel discussions; digital presentations and cutting edge data; long-term goals we will set collaboratively for working groups; group statements to policy makers and regulators; and the building blocks for a stronger Aquaponics Association!
A major component of the Conference will be the tour and interactive session at the KSU Aquaculture Research Center. This Center hosts one of the most advanced aquaculture research programs in the nation, including indoor aquaponics research systems, saltwater aquaponics research, a 30’ x 70’ aquaponics demonstration greenhouse, a 10,000sq foot recirculating aquaculture research building, and 33 research ponds.
Conference attendees will walk away with cutting edge information, new connections and a greater understanding of core knowledge and best practices. In addition to farm-to-table tours and hands on activities, learning tracks will focus on Aquaponics Research, STEM Education, hobby/home aquaponics, commercial farming, and community based endeavors. Interactive sessions will allow all participants to discuss and plan what we can do together to advance aquaponics.
As always, the Conference will feature top aquaponics experts and a vendor showroom of aquaponics technology and services.
We hope to see you there!
Brian Filipowich, Chairman
