Urban agriculture, urban farming, or urban gardening is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in or around urban areas. Urban agriculture can also involve animal husbandry, aquaculture, agroforestry, urban beekeeping, and horticulture.
An advanced form of hydroponics, aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment rather than soil. Aeroponic systems like the Tower Garden use water, liquid nutrients and a soilless growing medium to quickly and efficiently grow more colorful, tastier, better smelling and incredibly nutritious produce.
1) Plants grow in a soilless medium called rockwool.
Instead of soil, Tower Garden plants grow in a medium called rockwool, which provides plant roots with oxygen and consistent moisture, encouraging rapid, healthy growth.
2) The Reservoir stores the plant nutrient solution.
You'll fill the 20-gallon reservoir at the base of your Tower Garden with a mixture of Mineral Blend and Water.
3) The Solution cascades down the Tower Garden, nourishing plants.
A timer ensures this process repeats continuously—usually in 15-minute increments—to deliver the ideal amount of oxygen, water and nutrients to plants at the perfect time.
4) In a few weeks, plants are harvest-ready!
Aside from a few minor maintenance tasks, such as checking water levels and cleaning the pump filter, Tower Garden will take care of itself, and in a few short weeks, you'll be enjoying abundant homegrown produce, harvested at it's peak (so you can be at yours).
