Hydroponics Masterclass – Johannesburg (2 days)

It been a while in the making, and we are finally proud to launch our first purely Hydroponics Masterclass. Taking place at one of South Africas largest hydroponics farms, Jomo Joco (5 hectares) we will spend two days mastering what it takes to do successful hydroponics. Whether you are an aquaponic or hydroponic farmer this course will help you become a better farmer!

Your trainer Johan van den Bosch has over 15 years farming experience, and runs one of South Africas largest hydroponics farms and currently supplies all the major retailers, including Woolworths.
