What are you interested in, hobby gardening, self sufficiency gardening, community gardening or commercial farming (or all of these)?

Small scale commercial farming on the farmers market level. My wife and I also keep a hobby garden.

What gardening/farming experience do you have?

Other than a life long urge, insignificant hands on. Too much moving around in aviation. Finally settled in Mineral Wells last year.

What makes aquaponics interesting to you?

Supplement our retirement income with a natural, human level, backyard, premium food production system. We'll be using Koi as we don't want to eat our fish. Pets that actually work for their living - what a concept!


I'm building a 600 sq. ft. climate controlled, aquaponics greenhouse in Mineral Wells, with commercial intent. My name is Jim Dell. I'm about to retire from a career flying helicopters.
