Five of our sites have an indoor gardening system called a Tower Garden. It is self-watered and uses artificial lights that are set on a timer. Once a week the members check the pH level of the water and refill the water basin.
All the members love watching how quickly the plants grow and they are excited to have a harvest party very soon where they will get to enjoy the yummy things they have grown. The members are learning about planting seeds and noticing the different stages of plant life. They also completed a worksheet about the different type of vitamins that we get from vegetables, and the importance of each vitamin.
