Aquaponics and Earth Sustainable Living, Inc. (AESL) was founded by John and Teresa Musser of DeSoto, TX. The Musser’s have worked extensively with extreme poverty among thousands of small villages and orphanages since 1979, witnessing the most humiliating hunger needs and its crippling side effects around the world. One of the primary reasons for AESL is to help eradicate “the mentality of poverty” at its roots!
John Musser says, “our system can produce up to forty jobs in the third world and many here in the United States. Orphans can have hands on experience developing skills that will last a lifetime and give these children the joy and privilege of using their imagination to dream about what they want to do in the future.” Aquaponics and intensive earth grow systems are some of the most desired farming skills in the world today and part of the new wave in future farming. The orphans who are trained in these systems will be on the cutting edge!
