Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems (PAES) announced today that their next Aquaponics Technology and Design Workshop will be held April 2 6, 2013 near Orlando, FL. As with their previous workshops, the PAES staff will be joined by Father of Aquaponics, Dr. James Rakocy, famed Australian aquaponics expert, Dr. Wilson Lennard and special guest Dr. Fred Petitt of Walt Disney® Parks and Resorts.
The April 2013 workshop will feature daily lectures, hands-on instruction, tours of the PAES Aquaponics System, Green Sky Growers which is owned and operated by PAES and a Behind the Seeds tour of The Land at Epcot®. The PAES Aquaponic System, constructed behind Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems 130,000 sq. ft. facility in Apopka, FL, is a variation of Dr. Rakocys world-renowned UVI Aquaponic System.
In a statement about the PAES workshop, Dr. Rakocy said, "Teaching at the aquaponics course sponsored by Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems (PAES) was a real treat for me because Pentair AES employees have an incredible depth of experience and knowledge that they share with their students as they guide them through all phases of constructing and operating an aquaponic system to establish a successful hobby or business."
