How Growing Vegetables at Home Just Got Easier

Well summer is finally in full effect after one polar vortex of a winter! 4th of July will seem like it gets here quicker than it usually does too. For now, the breeze is intoxicating, and Americans everywhere are growing good health right at home. If you don’t have your own backyard to do your digging it's no problem! Traditional gardening has never been easier thanks to a unique tower gardening system that uses “aeroponics” and anyone with access to some sunlight can do it.

Aeroponics uses a vertical system that makes it seamless to grow your own fruits and vegetables inside or on your porch.
Growing your own food encourages self-reliance and beautifies neighborhoods. Producing nutritious food also reduces family food budgets, conserves resources, creates opportunities for recreation, exercise, therapy and education. Wow talk about hitting a healthy home run!

Why Vertical Gardening is Sweeping the Nation

The idea of self-reliance began during World War II, when families were encouraged to grow “victory gardens” and use the produce to supplement dwindling governmental food rations.

However, modern technology has made it easier than ever before to grow your own fruits and vegetables.

Here are a few benefits to having your own aeroponic system.

. Soil-free system means there is no weeding, tilling, kneeling, or getting dirty
. No gardening experience is necessary
. Fits easily on urban patios, decks, porches, balconies, terraces, or rooftop gardens
. Grows many fruits and almost any vegetable, herb, or flower
. With an extension kit you can grow up to 28 plants in one Tower
. Uses as little as 10% of traditional growing nutrients & water
. Can produce crops in less time than it takes to grow in soil

No wonder there are so many of these back porch vertical gardens sprouting up across the U.S. A demonstration video can be found here. or at theTeamDRN.com Facebook page.

Whether you’re looking to save money, eat healthier or just a reason to get outside, tower gardening is a great way to do it!
