(CEA) Controlled Environment Agriculture – Hydroponics
VTF’s Intro to Hydroponics program is hosted by our gracious partners at Rebel Farms. Rebel Farms is an urban-based hydroponic greenhouse that grows an insane amount of specialty greens for some of Denver’s finest restaurants. While at Rebel Farms veterans will become familiar with the skillset needed to operate a hydroponic garden on any scale. With less agricultural land available than ever, and more unpredictable weather affecting world crops, it will be critical to utilize greenhouse technologies for food production. This program is facilitated by VTF graduate Joe Burner and is 8 weeks long requiring a 15 hour per week commitment. The veteran student will spend 120 training hours split between on the job training and classroom time covering core topics. Upon completion, graduates are awarded a Certificate of Completion that has been recognized by CSU’s Extension Office.
