Santa Cruz Workshop on Sunday, January 23rd!

Hello fellow algae enthusiasts:

Due to a variety of circumstances, we are re-scheduling the Santa Cruz workshop to February 27th. The coming Berkeley workshop will also be re-scheduled, to a date soon to be announced.

We are working on setting up a full-sized laboratory in the East Bay, where interested folk will be able to participate in our technical algae work and learn algae lab technique… details coming soon.

In green glory,

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

Sunday, January 23rd, 11-5 pm
111 Overlook Drive
Santa Cruz, CA 95060

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 be able to take home a one liter bottle 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

Send payment via PayPal (workshops@algaelab.org), or by mailing a check to:
ALGAELAB.ORG
1550 5th St.
Oakland, CA 94607

To receive the personal photo-bioreactor at the workshop, be sure to pay at least a week before the course date so that materials can be ordered…
