Aeroponic Tower Gardens

The Niagara Lions Club, PTO and Women’s Club have donated enough money for the Niagara Public School to buy two Aeroponic Tower Gardens

Using aeroponics - the same technology NASA uses - Tower Gardens grow plants with only water and nutrients rather than dirt. Research has found aeroponic systems grow plants three times faster and produce 30% greater yields on average.
 
Mr. Ellis along with the high school students grew lettuce, chard, kohlrabi and kale. When everything was at a full blown they enjoyed a salad party.  Apparently the salad party was a great hit with most students having two heaping plates, although some students still needed a little ranch dressing to spice it up a little.  Mr. Ellis said that it was a great success and with little effort. The students could see the growth from start to finish and enjoy the proceeds. According to Mr., Ellis the vegetables have about 40% more nutrients than the vegetable that come out of a bag from the store. He hopes that with the experiment the students will be more likely to reach for something healthy instead of reaching for a candy bar.
 
The two aeroponic systems will leave Mr. Ellis now and roll over to the junior high school with Ms. Anderson supervising and then to the elementary school in Mrs. Johnson’s care. With the success of this project, the Glacial Gardner Master Gardner Organizaion has sponsored most of the money for a third Tower Garden which they will receive shortly.
