Still Elementary Tower Garden
Organized by: Lynn Duhn
Our school is looking to purchase a Tower Garden. We have an After-School Garden Gang made up of approx. 50, 3rd-5th graders. We have been successful in planning, caring and growing vegetables in some outdoor raised beds. Summer Crops are donated to a local food bank. Fall crops are harvested and we do cooking activities with them. We would love to purchase a Tower Garden which is a vertical aeroponic growing system. The Garden Gang would love for classroom teachers to 'borrow' the tower for a growing season which typically is about 4-6 weeks long. We have a team of classroom teachers that are already thinking of ways to incorporate math and science activities and the Tower Garden into their classroom. The funds that we are asking for would go towards the initial purchase of the garden growing system, tomato cage, mineral blends for the system and Rockwell cubes for seed starting.
