With increasing droughts in California and the rising cost of produce, there has never been a better time to start growing your own food! Soon you will see Tower Garden on display at Olives – and you can watch it grow with us!
What is Tower Garden?
Tower Garden is a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system. It's perfect for rooftops, patios, balconies, terraces – or any sunny place outside. Tower Garden can grow almost any vegetable, herb or flower, as well as many fruits, in less time than it takes in soil. Tower Garden makes it easy to grow nutritious, great-tasting vegetables and fruits at home - no gardening experience required!
Why Tower Garden?
Growing your own food is a great way to eat healthier and more economically. However, we don't all have a shed full of gardening tools, a backyard at our fingertips, or the time to grow a traditional garden!
Tower Garden is easy to assemble and maintain. There is no soil, no weeds and no pests to worry about! You can grow up to 20 different plants with a standard size, 5' Tower Garden. With an abundance of produce just outside your own home, it's easy to eat a variety of healthy and local fruits and vegetables. Good for you and good for the planet - Tower Gardens' closed-system technology recycles 100% of its nutrients and water, using less than 10% of the water and land commonly required for conventional and organic farming. There is no need for pesticides, insecticides or herbicides since there are no weeds and no pests to worry about!
To see Tower Garden in action, check back at the store next week! We will be planting our Tower Garden on Friday, April 10th with seedlings, and posting the progress as they grow. All are welcome to watch, learn and participate.
We are getting excited for a summer of freshies (no, not the snowy kind) at Olives! Local produce is set to come in from our favourite farms in Pemberton including Root Down, Laughing Crow and Good Times Farming. If you haven't seen them yet, come on in for some locally grown spinach, mixed greens and pea shoots! From farm to grocery store, direct and fairly-traded. Thank you for all your support!
