Los Angeles Workshop – November 6th

Hands-on Algaculture Workshop, Including an Introduction to the Personal PhotoBioreactor!

Saturday, November 6th, 11-5 pm
At the NoHo Lofts
5355 Cartwright Avenue, North Hollywood, CA 91601 http://www.thenoholofts.net/

Sign up now, space is limited! See below for details.

Grow plentiful food and fuel in a small space.

Algae can make impressive amounts of food or fuel but do not require land, soil, or fresh water. They can be harvested every day, producing many times more output than land crops, and some of them (e.g. Spirulina) have amazing health benefits as food.

You can grow algae too — in your own home — and I would love to show you how.

Come to the Hands-On Home-Grow Algae workshop series. Go home with your own Personal Photo-BioReactor and everything you need to grow your own Spirulina superfood algae in your own home!

One personal algae photo-bioreactor in one sunny window can provide enough spirulina to significantly supplement the diet of one person every day. Larger installations can provide biofuel and organic fertilizer, and perform important services, such as cleaning up water, and eliminating greenhouse gases from exhaust.

In addition to an introduction to an overview of algae farming, and a discussion of the practicalities of setting up your own farm, we will have an extended hands-on section of the workshop where I will show you how to set up and run your personal photo-bioreactor kit — it’s easy!

Special offer: along with the workshop, all participants will receive a coupon for one liter of live spirulina culture to start your own tank or pond — this alone is worth far more than the course fee…

Course Fees:

$350 for workshop plus PPBR kit (shown in upper right image), including tank, heater, air pump, air diffuser, air tubing, valves, starter and make-up nutrient powder mix, pH testing, harvesting tube, harvesting cloth, clips, plug timer, and 1 liter live spirulina;

$150 for workshop only
