Whether you are homeschooling your own children or a teaching in a public or private school Tower Gardens are a great teaching tool. Many schools have traditional gardens which bring about many of the same issues we’ve discussed with traditional farming. The school needs lots of space to grow, the garden is weather restrictive, messy, and can only be taught in one location. Aeroponic Towers use the same technology as NASA so you’ve already peaked interest, children can learn about plants, gardening, and sustainable farming in a clean, dry, area which can be portable. Many schools across the country are currently supplying their cafeteria with produce, donating produce locally to those in need, and selling produce at local farmer’s markets. This is truly the way to teach children to live in sustainable and healthy manner not just talk about it.
1. You’ll grow more in less time and with fewer resources.
Tower Garden uses aeroponic technology, which—compared to soil gardening—has been shown to increase yields by as much as 30% and triple the speed of plant growth, while using only 10% of the water and space.
2. You can grow inside the classroom.
LED indoor grow lights allow you to garden indoors all school year long, which means bodies (and minds) don’t have to leave your learning environment to grow.
3. You’ll have less mess.
Compared to traditional gardening, there’s less hassle and cleanup with Tower Garden, because it doesn’t use soil.
4. You can move it wherever learning is happening.
With the dolly, you can wheel Tower Garden from the classroom to the cafeteria to the playground—and pretty much anywhere else your students are!
5. You’ll get growing support.
Lesson plans, growing guides, FAQs and more—the Tower Garden website is packed with useful information. Plus, Customer Service is just a click or call away, happy to help troubleshoot any problem you might have.
6. You’ll get free access to lesson plans.
With 30 CCSS- and NGSS-aligned lesson plans and learning materials for Pre-K through 7th grade, incorporating Tower Garden into your curriculum will be easy.
Plus, there are studies showing that children who garden are more likely to eat vegetables.
Educate, excite, and inspire in your classroom.
