Introduction to Algae Farming
An overview of algae farming technique, and all of the considerations that go into algae farming – including growing, harvesting, and processing – as well as common solutions. The goal is to provide a solid foundation for further exploration of algae farming. A 2-hour course, followed by a half-hour question and answer session with Dr. Baum.
Getting Started With Spirulina
Spirulina is the best way to start algae farming, and this course is the best way to be sure you’ll be successful! Dr. Baum, founder of AlgaeLab and creator of our Grow Your Own Spirulina kits, takes you through all the steps: obtaining and caring for starter culture, growing it out, harvesting, maintenance, and best technique for keeping your culture pure and healthy. A 2-hour course, followed by a half-hour question and answer session.
