Frank Murin and Sarajain Overstreet

Senior residents began planting the herbs, lettuce and tomatoes they’ll enjoy in their meals on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at Spring Hills Lake Mary Assisted Living. They planted herbs and vegetables using three Tower Gardens. One Tower Garden will have tomatoes in it. A second one will be planted with a number of herbs including basil, oregano, cilantro, chives, dill, lavender and more. The final Tower Garden will have two varieties of lettuce, romaine and spring mix, as well as celery.

What is a Tower Garden?
A Tower Garden is a vertical, aeroponic (same technology as NASA) growing system that grows up to 20 vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers in less than three square feet—indoors or out. Using only water and nutrients, research has found this aeroponic systems grows plants three times faster and produces 30% greater yields on average which means herbs and vegetables are ready for harvest just weeks after planting.
