The first ever Aquaponics Festival is happening this summer at the Aquaponic Source, right here in Colorado. The festival will be held on August 9th and 10th, 2014 in beautiful Longmont, CO. The Aquaponic Source is one of the largest distributors of Aquaponics kits in North America and has played a pivotal role in forming the amazing aquaponics community we have in this area and across the world. The festival will be two days full of speakers, workshops, tours, networking, and all around fun. Click here, for a complete list of speakers and workshops. I will be there representing both Solid State Depot, the Boulder Hackerspace and the Boulder Aquaponics Enthusiasts. I will also be giving a talk on open source technology, hackerspaces and how they can transform aquaponics for the betterment of humankind.
