Hi, I’m Allen Bissell. I always knew I wanted to work in a field related to plants and everything living things, but it took me a long time to find what exactly I was looking for. I first got into horticulture when high school gardening was offered as an elective course. So I signed up for it and discovered that not only did it sound like something interesting but also like something practical too!
After graduating from college with an environmental science degree, I was invited by a friend to work at a hydroponics farm. That’s when my passion for hydroponics was kindled. The last few years have been really interesting because that’s when hydroponics became more prevalent in the gardening world. Hydroponics has been around for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that people started to use it on a larger scale for things like food production.
