Growers Supply Hosting Controlled Environment Agriculture Workshop In Connecticut In June
Growers Supply, a provider of greenhouses, high tunnels, and hydroponic systems, will be hosting its next controlled environment agriculture (CEA) Hands-On Workshop June 15-17 at the company’s CEA Learning Center East in South Windsor, CT.
The June workshop offers participants an education-filled, three-day schedule in which Growers Supply experts and industry specialists educate attendees on the latest trends in current and innovative growing techniques, such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and microgreen production.
The workshop’s curriculum begins with the basics of controlled environment agriculture, and then shifts towards how attendees can integrate or improve CEA techniques in their operation. Over the three-day workshop, attendees will receive hands-on demonstrations and professional insight on topics such as sizing a greenhouse, nutrient management, integrated pest management techniques, the benefits of specific hydroponic systems, tapping into two markets with aquaponics, producing microgreens, and more.
The workshop costs $995 for the full three days, and the price includes a three-day hotel stay, lunch each day, and a complete course workbook.
Upon completion of the workshop, each attendee will receive a $995 product credit that can be used towards the purchase of any controlled environment product, including GrowSpan greenhouses, HydroCycle hydroponic systems, growing accessories, and more.
