Have you seen our Tower Garden in the cafeteria?
PS 29 received a grant from the WITS (Wellness in the Schools) program to purchase a Tower Garden® Vertical Aeroponic Growing System. This system uses Aeroponics to grow vegetables. Aeroponics is a way of growing plants using air or a mist environment without the use of soil. This Tower is in the cafeteria and the lettuce has been growing and looks so healthy! This indoor tower garden is a great addition to our outdoor garden. It will provide opportunity for hands on learning during science but also will enrich our discussions on sustainability. During this first cycle we are growing lettuce and learning together with our students how the tower works. During our next cycle students will be choosing from a variety of seeds what to grow.
