Garden Tower helps 88-year-old woman continue to garden

So inspiring! If we still had very limited gardening space, I would totally be getting one of these Garden Towers. Who knows? I still might. I thought I’d share this post here, though, since I hear from so many would-be gardeners that they “don’t have enough space” to grow food. This opens possibilities for many– young, old and space compromised. Cheers!

  1. This is one of my favorite things in the whole world!
    Yes…that’s child-like joy you hear 🙂
    Great for apartment decks and supposedly uses less water (it’s hydroponic of course) than even traditional gardening.

  2. i love these garden towers. i think they’re awesome. i’ve thought about one since beginning of year when a reiki student shared it with me in class. pricey, but a good investment.

    • I think it’s a really good investment. We’ve spent $ setting up our gardens and I’m not sure if we’ve broken even yet, as it’s been pretty extensive. That said, we have saved tons and tons of money by harvesting our own food. Other than salad greens, which I am not growing in the heat this summer, we have not had to buy greens all summer. Ditto on green onions, tomatoes, jalepeno’s … I harvested 8 huge green peppers before retiring that plant in favor of planting peas for a Fall crop, and we’ve got tons and tons of mint and other herbs for teas. Plus, you just can’t beat the freshness factor!

      • Forgot the cucumbers, too … OMG, so delicious! We also have four watermelons and several cantaloupe growing well. Mmmmm… but the tomatoes and pesto and dandelions take the prizes. I’m dehydrating 15 tomatoes right now, have frozen dozens and dozens more, have eaten and given away so many already, and the season’s nowhere near over. I also have loads of homegrown pesto frozen for the winter. Pints and pints of it … in that regard, even with all my gardening madness, I think we have more than broken even just in one season. xox

  3. i agree, and from what i’ve heard and read, the towers are super easy to get going and maintain pretty much anywhere, so the time investment also is cut. freshness and home grown can’t be compared to anything. everything just tastes so much better! it’s so awesome that more and more there is a way for people to have what they desire, with all the visionaries out there bringing in the ways! xoox
