Plant Aloha: Aquaponics with Jeremai Cann

April 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Plant Aloha Hawaiian Sanctuary

Aquaponics with Jeremai Cann
In this class learn to build your own highly productive and sustainable aquaponics garden system. It is easy to grow food, flowers, and herbs with aquaponics. By combining fish rearing (aquaculture) and growing plants in water (hydroponics) we can maximize the growing potential of both systems. Topics to be covered; hydroponics, aquaculture, water quality, system cycling and construction.

Jeremai Cann is known as “Dr. Sustainability” on Oahu, Jeremai Cann is a Jamaican-born islander who was first taught about growing food by his parents on their family land where he learned that water is key to life. A graduate of the University of Florida, he entered the environmental field professionally in 1996 as an Environmental Compliance Inspector with the Miami-Dade County of Florida. During this time he gained an avid interest in alternative energy systems and organic agriculture. Moving to Oahu in 2004, Jeremai kindled his passion for eco-friendly education as a consultant and teacher of renewable energy and sustainability. Dr. Sustainability now resides in Orchidland in the Puna District of Hawaii Island where he builds and sells tiny homes and continues to offer his environmental consultation and educational services to island neighbors near and far.
