St. Richard Urban Agriculture Club - Tower Garden

Urban Agriculture Club members are growing vegetables in our school using a Tower Garden aeroponics system. Our goal is to offer our classmates, teachers and parents the opportunity to watch vegetables growing indoors in the winter. We're producing healthy snacks for kids to pick fresh right in the hallway. Twelve Urban Agriculture Club members helped to nurture seeds using a heat mat and lights before placing them into the tower. This project helps us work towards our goal of exploring the many ways that we can improve our school, local and greater community by growing vegetables.
