Tower Garden Project
Transcript of Tower Garden Project
More than healthy eating
The Best Part...
Healthy Kids = Healthy Minds
In-school field trips
Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards
More Than Science? Yes!
Participate in shared research and writing projects
Compose informative/explanatory texts to supply information about the topic
Ask and answer questions in order to seek help, get information, or clarify something
Reason abstractly and quantitatively
Create a graph to represent data
The Tower Garden can be used across the
curriculum to support teaching and learning in an
incredible "hands on" way.
What is a Tower Garden?
Tower Garden® is a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system.
What are the benefits?
Students see where their food comes from.
Kids are exposed to new fruits and vegetables.
Kids are proud to eat what they grew!
Grows quickly for faster turnover.
Multiple tower gardens means more fresh fruits and vegetables for the lunchroom!
How does Tower Garden relate to curriculum?
Next Generation Science Standards
Natural resource conservation
Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems
Weather and Climate
Human Impacts (and find solutions to the problems caused by human impact)
Natural Selection and Adaptations
That's not all!
California is facing its first ever state-wide mandatory water reductions. Food prices are increasing as fresh fruits and vegetables are likely to become scarce.
Each Tower Garden uses 90% less water and 90% less land than a traditional garden.
This is the future of growing food and we can bring it to District 93!
How much will this cost?
One Tower Garden with an extension and a tomato cage is $660. It is a
one time cost
as the Garden is made to last 10-20 years. The grow lights are an additional $220, bringing the total to $880.
