Why you should Invest in ZipGrow Hydroponic & Aquaponic Farming Training.

We know how important it is to have your feet underneath you when starting a commercial farm. That’s why we built our very own ZipFarm™ at our headquarters facility in Cornwall, Ontario. We offer several options for training and support to assist you in becoming a successful indoor farmer. Don’t want to purchase a full-blown training package? Swing by the farm for a tour for free!

In addition to hands-on training at our facility in Ontario, we also offer to send one of our master growers to your location.

Our Hydroponic Farming Training Packages.

We offer several packages that can be tailored to your needs, everything from online training to one-on-one business and grower training.

Upstart University is an online educational platform containing several courses available for you to take right from your home. All you need is an internet connection and a computer. Learn at your own pace with this knowledge-rich platform covering everything we know about hydroponics. It’s also the perfect tool for commercial farmers to train employees and students.

Phone Training | Consulting | $100/Hour

We have master growers on staff that you can book a time with and get answers to your questions through a video call.

In-Person | Starter | $ variable/Visit

We send a master grower to your farm or school for 1-2 days. We can cover the basic principles of hydroponics, optimizing plant production, sales help, marketing help, among others. We don’t intend to make a profit, we just ask that you pay for the cost of travel and accommodations for the time required. These trips are short, so it is best to let us know what type of support you are looking for ahead of time. That way we can come prepared to tackle anything you might need.

In-Person | Advanced | $799/Visit

Come to our training farm for 3 days at our head office in Ontario and work with our master grower and seasoned growing team. Spend this time working on the farm with us and gain valuable hands-on knowledge of the inner- workings of an indoor farm. We include some classroom time and can provide lodging recommendations for your stay.

Training is offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Please give one week of advance notice.

In-Person | Pro | $5000/Visit*

We send a master grower to your location for 3 days to show you how to use your ZipFarm™ system. The grower will walk you through the operating procedures, schedule your plant production, discuss marketing, sales, and everything in between. We will also invite you to our training farm for a few days of hands-on training. So, you can get a feel for things prior to the installation of your farm. Included in this package are weekly check-ins with you through videoconferencing to ensure you are starting off on the right foot. *Depending on where you’re located, the cost of flights may increase the price of this package.*
