We were fortunate enough to attend a short course training at Friendly Aquaponics. Friendly is a fully operational commercial aquaponics farm, located on the big island of Hawaii. The aquaponic farm, operated by Susanne Friend and Tim Mann, sells organic certified produce that is processed on site. The course was designed as part-time lecture/theory and part-time as a hands-on demonstration at the farm.

Both sections were team taught which added an interesting twist to the training. Susanne and Tim were wonderful in their own respects. They are both extremely passionate about their work and strive to give their students every tool possible to become successful.
