In this one day hydroponics workshop held in a farm, your will learn:

  • Hydroponics Urban Farming Technology
  • Aquaponics Farming Technology
  • Auto Pot Farming Technology
  • Plant Factory Technology

At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand and apply the basic concepts to;

  • Cultivate hydroponic leafy crops
  • Provide the necessary growing environment
  • Select or design hydroponic systems
  • Diagnose plant problems

Participants will also be provided with a a Hydroponics Hobby Kit (participants can take this kit home & practice)

Have instructional video clips for participants to review and revise at home in the event they cannot remember the steps. Provide participants with audio/video recordings of the training session.(eg via online download).

Provide notes/ slides to participants once their registration is successful. This will allow participants to read in advance and come more prepared for the course. (Posted on 8/16/2016)

The notes should be printed on white background. Can't write on a dark background. You're wasting ink as well. Writing materials, pens and writing pads, should be provided. Some hands-on practical would the course more interactive and interesting. (Posted on 7/4/2016)

Excellent instructor. Would be helpful if there was a little white space in the booklet for us to add our own notes

A more central and accessible location with eateries so we can purchase our own meals. (Posted on 7/3/2016)

Dear Alfred,

Thank you for organising the workshop.

I indeed learned a lot from it.

Although I have started a little bit of setting up my hydroponics, I had more failures than successes.

Upon attending the workshop, I now understand why I failed.

I sure hope to be doing it the right way as what Dr Mallick has presented and ending up with successes this time.

Thank you once again for all your hard work and the food was good as well (Posted on 5/14/2016)

We'll keep in touch.

My two cents worth of this courseReview by John Tan

3. How do you find the training environment
With limited space for gardening and farming, anyone who is thinking of home farming should consider this course. It is pretty enriching and eye-opening especially in the areas of nutrients and lighting though in brief.

Despite the location, however, the organiser does provide transport to those who need it. Thumb up! (Posted on 3/8/2014)

Dr Mallick really has extensive and deep insight on hydroponics. I truly enjoyed his course and learned a lot of valuable knowledge on hydroponics. This has helped me to setup my own little hydroponics NFT system on my balcony. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in hydroponics to take up this course. (Posted on 9/27/2013)
