“freshwater lobster,” but also fresh vegetables year round.
seven years, Air Force veteran and tool and die maker Glynn Barber, 45,
researched and developed the Environmentally Controlled Sustainable

successfully operating a prototype in a new greenhouse next to the
garage, he’s now ready to market the system, whose components are all
made in Muncie and other local cities.
