Meet and Learn from the Industry’s Finest
GrowSpan’s parent company is not only committed to providing growers with the highest-quality products, but also to ensuring that each customer gets the most out of their growing products. To make this happen, Growers Supply hosts their CEA Hands-On Workshop at their Dyersville, Iowa campus.
The workshop brings together growing industry experts, like leading growers, educators and product specialists, to teach attendees of all skill levels the newest trends and up-to-date information on controlled environment agriculture. Attendees gain extensive knowledge on hydroponics, aquaponics and environmental control techniques that can help both the professional and hobbyist take their business or operation to the next level.
Attendees will have time with industry experts and will be able to ask questions that are specific to their needs. Greenhouse and Hydroponic Specialists will be on hand to help with any current or future projects, and growers will also be able to network and share information and solutions with each other.
When and Where is the Workshop Held?
The CEA Hands-On Workshop is held at Cea Learning Center West in Dyersville, Iowa. CEA Learning Center West consists of two commercial greenhouses that produce year-round. One greenhouse utilizes a number of hydroponics systems, while the other features a full-scale aquaponics operation.
