Tim Blank plants the seed for a better way to growTechnology. Vision. Passion. It took all three—and more than 5 years—to fully develop Tower Garden. Tim Blank was Greenhouse Manager for Epcot’s cutting-edge agricultural display until 2005. He left and founded Future Growing with the dream that someday everybody on the planet would have access to healthy food in their own home and local community.
At Future Growing, Tim developed this state-of-the-art vertical garden system. When Juice Plus+ learned about Tower Garden, we knew it would be a perfect way to further our goal of promoting healthy nutrition for you and your family. In 2011, Juice Plus+ purchased the rights to produce and distribute Tower Gardens for home use from Tim Blank and his company.
The Tower Garden® is a patented vertical aeroponic food production system designed for urban farms , rooftop gardens , and commercial growing operations. Because of its vertical design, the system is space and energy efficient.
The basic Tower Garden® unit has a 2.5' x 2.5' footprint, and uses modular stackable growing pots. With an 11-pot maximum configuration, you can grow up to 44 plants per tower, as illustrated in the animated diagram at right.
If you could have a flower or vegetable garden outside your door that uses 90 percent less water, 95 percent less space, has a zero carbon footprint and you only have to maintain the garden every couple of days.
The Tower Garden® has many uses from an Urban Farm on your co-op rooftop or neighborhood vacant lot, to a restaurant who wants to control exactly what produce to use fresh daily or a family who just wants the freshest safest vegetables possible at their fingertips each day.
TOWER GARDEN® IS:
• SAFE: Made from USDA-approved, UV-stabilized, food-grade plastic
• EFFICIENT: Grows 20 plants in just 2.5 feet by 2.5 feet of space
• ECO-FRIENDLY: Uses one tenth the water and land required by traditional growing and virtually eliminates the need to ship and store produce and almost ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT
• EASY: Easy to assemble, and there’s no weeding, tilling, or kneeling
• COST-EFFECTIVE: Lasts a lifetime and easily pays for itself — typically in about 2 years
Our patented vertical aeroponic Tower Garden® technology is made from some of the best food grade plastic available on earth. Our plastic is FDA food grade compliant and free of harmful components commonly found in today’s agriculture-grade plastics. Additionally, we designed the Tower Garden® product for decades of use! Our plastic is several times thicker than almost all hydroponic products available on the market today. The plastic is also completely opaque, keeping all sunlight out (which naturally inhibits algae growth), and is UV stabilized for outdoor protection.
Most white plastics are not opaque and degrade quickly over time, as solar UV radiation tends to break plastic down from the inside out. Unfortunately, there are many lower grade plastics, even polystyrene foam, being widely used in the hydroponics industry. These products tend to degrade quickly under sunlight, and can sometimes leach harmful chemicals into the environment over long term use.
We believe that making an initial investment in good material — and staying away from short term disposable types of plastic — is a more sustainable choice that helps to sustain the planet for generations to come.
