Growing Aeroponically and Vertically - the Future of Food

After seeing several sucessful installations of these systems, we have purchased one ourselves and are going to set it up and plant the seedlings we have already started. See an inspiring slideshow of Tower Garden in various applications - Sustainable Urban Gardening is spreading!

We will also share the aquaponic system that we have built DIY and share the challenges we have faced with doing this in our area.

Please RSVP and I will send you the address. We will have a simple salad bar and water - please feel free to bring produce from your garden to share for the salad or as a side! Any questions, call Teri or Jason at [masked]

We are so excited to share this system that has only been made available to the general public for 3 months.

This is a plug and play system that takes about 20-30 minutes to set up- no special experience required.

This is a Soil-free system means there is no weeding, tilling, kneeling, or getting dirty

No gardening experience is necessary

Fits easily on urban patios, decks, porches, balconies, terraces, or rooftop gardens

Grows many fruits and almost any vegetable, herb, or flower

You can even purchase an extension kit and grow up to 28 plants in one Tower

Uses as little as 10% of traditional growing nutrients & water

Can produce crops in less time than it takes to grow in soil - NASA suggests it takes about half of the time as traditional gardening.

Tower Garden is Made from USDA-approved, UV-stabilized, food-grade plastic that is currently being manufactured in the USA!

Below is a link about the developer of the Tower Garden.

    It was exciting to see the Tower Garden assembled, and I'm even more excited and curious to see an update on the plant growth in a few weeks!
