Intro to Aeroponics & Biogas [CRAFT]

June 12, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

Learn about two kinds of innovative agricultural systems—aeroponics and biogas—and see them up close.

In aeroponic systems, growers rely on air and water mist to grow plants. Aeroponics has become increasingly popular in urban areas and on sites that utilize industrial buildings for growing. These systems enable growers to produce vegetables year-round and in large quantities for retail or wholesale markets.   

Biogas systems produce fuel by fermenting organic waste through anaerobic (without oxygen) decomposition. Small-scale biogas systems can digest animal waste or food waste to produce fuel and fertilizer.  

Janice Kelsey, co-founder and vice president of the nonprofit Solar CITIES, will provide a tour of her aeroponic growing facility. Afterward, we’ll travel to Adragone Aeroponics, where founder Jody Spangler will introduce us to a small-scale biogas system.
