Growing Healthy Communities
Our Garden Tower program works to encourage healthy eating and food literacy by growing food in the classroom. Caring for and cultivating a hydroponic garden tower in the classroom gives youth a positive connection to healthy food. So much is possible with a garden tower! There are many ways to engage youth in math, science, teamwork, responsibility and more! It is a teaching tool that can be adapted to the interests of your students.
If you would like to get a garden tower for your classroom you can join our program in one of two ways:
Rent a tower for $500/year (one year commitment)
Or buy a tower for $2000 to own it (life time)
