Eduponics Institute USA brings knowledge and training to public schools, colleges and community organizations. As nearly all new population around the world will live in cities, hydroponic gardening has the potential to improve dietary outcomes and to create a "new economic engine" for 90% of the world's people.
We invite authors to submit courses on all related topics, including general hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics. Our general approach is — to borrow a phrase — let 100 ideas bloom.
TrainingWe want to see you off to a flying start.
Operate a working indoor farm (example) in a classroom, supplying locally grown, fresh, nutritious vegetables.
Early in the program students earn state-approved certificates in hygiene and food handling, which can lead to full or part-time employment. (Varies by jurisdiction.)
Your working indoor farm doubles as your training laboratory.
We help you configure your training lab/farm and provide advice on installation.
Optionally have one of our experienced installers implement your lab/farm.
You might choose to include assembly and disassembly of equipment in your curriculum.
Build awareness and acceptance of healthy diets and local production. Help create and develop new economic engines in disadvantaged communities.
Optionally partner with community organizations and retailers to improve nutrition in communities that are not well served by corporate grocery chains, the so-called urban food desert, where low incomes and inefficient transportation combine to lower the availability of nutritious fresh produce.
Note to Teachers: Eduponics is a perfect project for your DECA program, blending planning, development, production, marketing, sales, and management to achieve a real world result.Your local experience will reveal and define other opportunities. We can help you automate these tasks.
