How to Grow Your Own Spirulina

This document is a summary of the teaching manual “Grow Your Own Spirulina” written by Jean-Paul JOURDAN (the full version available in FRANCAIS), who spent more than 12 years working on the development of low-cost techniques of spirulina production. After a career in the chemical industry, he devoted his retirement time in the south of France, with the goal to participate in making spirulina available to the children in developing countries.

He worked with Ripley Fox and Francisco Ayala, became a member of Technap, and collaborated closely with Antenna Technologies and several other NGOs working on spirulina. Besides this book, Jean-Paul has participated in the teaching methods, which are used at the spirulina teaching center (CFPPA) of the Agricultural School of Hyères, France.
