    Note: The Eduponics online presence is under continuous development, and some features remain aspirational.


    Once published, contributing institutions and/or authors participate in revenue derived from their course(s).


    It is recommended that each school should


    • Adapt calendars to recognize the growing environment, which typically will not conform to existing schedules
    • Develop optional short courses and seminars
    • Facilitate independent study and practicum


    • Reconfigure classroom space for hydroponics instruction
    • Promote hands-on laboratory farming experience


    • Select qualified students for follow-up courses on managerial and entrepreneurial aspects of the urban farming business
    • Combine training with an associated vegetable production enterprise (this might take the form of internal distribution, e.g., to an in-house cafeteria, or perhaps link your program to DECA)
    • Define terms of about 60 classroom hours plus lab time for a basic technical certificate; one or two semesters depending on school calendar and extra-curricular activity
    The early hygiene, safety and food handling components may qualify students for part or full time employment even before they complete the entire curriculum.
