Environmentally Sustainable and truly beneficial. When construction begins on this $20 Million Aquaponic Farm in Wellston, it will be a key investment into this community. The “farm” of sorts will create several new, entry level jobs for the community of Wellston. The owner, from Minnesota, sees something in Wellston to build a new structure that will employ many people, a majority of whom, could very well be new to the workforce.
According to the owner, the farm is meant to be a learning experience that is fun and educational. Basically, it will help prospective people who are looking at having a job in horticulture, become a reality. Besides the educational stand point, the building will also be one that is truly renewable. The structure would be lowered by...
- Solar Panels on the Roof
- Some wind turbines
These will make the building run off of 100% renewable energy second only behind Alberci along Interstate 170 in Olivette.
Construction should begin early next year and wrap up in Winter 2018 or Spring 2019. When completed, the Aquaponic Farm will grow plants and be a fish hatchery. All renewable resources and an educational development that will surely spruce up Wellston. Personally, I can’t wait to see this completed.
