Nestled some 13,000 feet up the Andes mountains of Peru, the village of Aymara is literally breathtaking. The chest heaves, the head throbs, the fingers tingle. The air is so thin and clear that distances deceive. Crags are etched in such detail that mountains appear closer, and the grassy slopes and cultivated terraces are an intense green.

Greenhouses once ruled the Pajaro Valley on the Central California coast, where the local cut-flower business found success worldwide. Empty nurseries now dot the area, a sign of the industry's decline. But with the help of plenty of water, Chris Newman, 58, hopes to restore the glory of greenhouses. His tactic is called aquaponics, a combination of aquaculture — fish farming — and hydroponics — growing plants in water. With the help of neighbors and his brother Tom, Newman has converted 14,000 square feet in a former rose-growing facility into a system of stream channels, gravel beds and water pipes where he hopes to soon raise fish and grow vegetables commercially.
