What is Aquaponics? What is POOtrient? Our school group workshops take a deeper dive into the science and technology of Urban Agriculture – specifically aquaponics. We don’t stop there… we challenge students to understand the concepts of biomimicry, biology, ecology, closed-loop systems, circular economies, and so much more. We’ve found (local) food is an amazing medium to bring people from diverse backgrounds around the same table to learn and grow.Take your students on a field trip to Ripple Farms to learn more about these topics, and more!
 
Ripple Farms has brought Canada's First Urban Farming Unit to The Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto. In business, Ripple operates as a Social Enterprise and is dedicated to putting people before profits. Our mission is to provide customers with nutrient-rich, locally produced food. Our purpose is to reconnect urban populations with food by engaging people through hands-on workshops and educational material. Our aim is to tackle food security one meal at a time. With our systems, there is no longer a need to have produce shipped thousands of kilometres when we can produce it right here on Canadian soil.
