6 Reasons Tower Garden Is a Great Teaching Tool

As Global Teacher Prize Finalist Stephen Ritz said, Tower Garden "is the most cost-effective school garden aligned to academic outcomes one can ever imagine." No wonder we’ve seen thousands of schools across the country take up Tower Gardening!

Here are just a few reasons we think you’ll love growing Tower Garden in your classroom.

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. Tower Garden Home includes the grow lights. You can also add LED indoor grow lights to your Tower Garden FLEX Growing System.

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.

Would you like to better engage your class, increase attendance, or improve student performance? Tower Garden can help you educate, excite, and inspire in your classroom.
