Thank you to everyone writing in asking my personal opinion on specific compost and grow systems. As a soil nerd, this is something I love to talk about. :)
I wanted to share the home system I’ve been most excited about for years!
A mission-driven company called Garden Tower Project created the most comprehensive all-in-one grow and compost system I’ve ever seen.
And after traveling for years making this film, I’ve nearly seen it all!
(In the Impact Kit, Farmer Rishi and I put one of these together, from in the box, to fully set up in under 5 minutes)
Head over to the Garden Tower website and check out their award-winning tower garden. This company knows how much I love their solution, and as fans of The Need To GROW, they’ve generously offered our audience a $60 off coupon for the Garden Tower if you use the code: TNTG60 at checkout! (shipping is only in the US at this time)
I’ve had one for years (there’s even a quick shot of mine in the film) and it’s the first thing I recommend to friends and family when I’m speaking about growing food or home composting.
Why I will likely never love any system as much as this:
50 plants in 4 square feet - grow a LOT vertically in a tiny space.
Save Water - captures its own excess water to reuse!
Accessible/User Friendly - the whole tower rotates, making it senior friendly, for easy plant access, sunlight exposure, and can even roll on wheels! Put this on a balcony, rooftop, patio, deck, porch, or even on a grass yard...anywhere!
Soil based - fill the tower with soil to grow the most nutrient-dense foods, even without access to bare ground (people with existing gardens love using this too!)
