Urban Gardening with Tower Garden
Grow, know, and love your food – Imagine being able to grow your own salad ingredients from your own city apartment. No dirt necessary, what????!
With Tower Garden, an aeroponic growing system, you can grow your own fruit, vegetables, and herbs in the comfort of your home – indoors or outdoors and all year round.
So, how does a Tower Garden work?
How can I grow my own vegetable garden in the city?
No outdoor space, no problem.
The Tower Garden dimensions are 148 x 59 x 59 cm and can happily fit in an unused corner of a room, hall, or kitchen. This garden grows vertically, stacking the plants, therefore saving precious city square metres.
How does it grow produce indoors without dirt?
It literally “rains” inside the Tower Garden using an aeroponic technology that pumps mineral-enhanced water through the middle of the tower. This mineral enhanced water provides the plants with everything they need to grow 3x faster allowing you to reap 30% more of the harvest.
No sunlight, no problem!
If you want to use the Tower Garden indoors where there isn’t enough regular sunlight, there are LED indoor “grow” lights available for the Tower Garden, that allow you to easily grow leafy greens, herbs, and other non-fruiting crops indoors year-round.
Don’t have a green thumb?
No stress. You can either start from a seed or buy seedlings at a Juice Plus+ provider.
Seedlings are mini plants that have already been grown to a good size. Just buy and you plop the seedling right into your Tower Garden and you’re good to go.
If you start from a seed, like a farmer does, use the Seedling Starter Kit. It comes with everything you need to grow your own seedlings. It includes the germination tray, rockwool cubes, vermiculite and net pots, and a variety of seeds for leafy greens, lettuces, and herbs
So, the question is now…
