A Tower Garden, is a vertical, aeroponic growing system, allowing us to grow up to 20 vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers in less than three square feet—indoors or out. This garden is perfect for us with green thumbs or not so green. It allows us to grow organic non GMO products all year long no matter what climate we live. Its perfect for small homes, classrooms, patios,etc
I decided to buy a tower garden after I changed my eating life style. I live by 80/20 rule (or a little bit of what you fancy will not hurt anyone) so its a perfect companion towards my healthy living.
So a little more information about aeroponic. Aceropnics is the same technology NASA uses and this tower garden grows plants using water and nutrients rather than dirt. It requires as little as 10% of the land and water traditional growing methods use.
Plants grow tree times faster and on average produce 30% great yields. I have read that is better for the environment .
Instead of soil, Tower Garden plants grow in a medium called rockwool, which provides plant roots with oxygen and consistent moisture, encouraging rapid, healthy grow. You can purchase the plants as seedling or grow from seeds.
A low-wattage, submersible pump (that sounds beautiful) in the reservoir pushes the nutrient solution to the top of our Tower Garden through a small central pipe. The nutrient solution then drips down the inside of the Tower Garden, evenly cascading over the exposed plant roots.
A timer ensures this process repeats continuously—usually in 15-minute increments—to deliver the ideal amount of oxygen, water and nutrients to our plants at the perfect time.
You can make your own however for our first we decided to purchase one that we just needed to be assembled right out of the box with growing instructions, care etc which allows for Ease. Perhaps some day we will take on a bigger project of building our own however the joy of purchasing from a woman in my area and seeing her also thrive, her with money and her gift of teaching healing living and us the gratitude of being able to purchase and add to our healthily living.
For us as a family this is fun, every day we witness that our plants have grown over night, allowing us to start our day in an abundant vibration. We experience so much joy watching our plants grow and feeling that deeper connection with our food.
