Build a Strong Immune System
Kids who eat lots of fruits and vegetables tend to have stronger immune systems than those who don’t. A strong immune system is a big deterrent to viruses and allergies.
We feel at peace in a garden. Our first home was a garden! Genesis 2:15 says, “Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.”
Grow a Taste for Good Food
A garden encourages healthy taste buds. Cook and eat fruit, veggies, and whole grains, and your family will develop a lifelong taste for healthy foods!
Make Science Fun
Study botany by watching a tiny seed sprout or by hand pollinating a pumpkin. Delve into entomology by watching ladybugs munch on tasty aphids.
Discover Our Amazing Creator
We delight to discover that God designs His creations with interesting repeating patterns and shapes. God must love math! We can also see that our Lord delights in beauty, vibrant colors, interesting textures, shapes, and tastes!
Grow Healthier Kids
The links between ADHD/autism and poor nutrition/pesticides is growing stronger every day. Grow using organic methods easily on the Tower Garden!
Save Grocery Money
A well-designed, easy-to-grow garden will save your family thousands of dollars over the years. The aeroponic Tower Garden is designed to last 20-25 years and will produce over $10,000-worth of healthy, beyond organic produce over its lifetime in the sunny southern states. (Conversely, a neglected ground garden can do just the opposite and be a black hole of time and energy, creating a stressed-out mom and a muddy back yard.)
Follow God’s Practical Plan
“Build houses and live in them; and plant gardens and eat their produce” (Jeremiah 29: 5, NASB). Gardens were in God’s plan for the captive Israelites, and we can be assured that He intends for us to grow our own healthy produce today too!
Learn the Principle of Sowing and Reaping
“Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7, NASB). Enough said!
Learn the Principle of Pruning
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit” (John 15:1-2, NASB). Nothing drives this lesson home like pruning an unruly tomato plant!
Have Tons of Fun!
Busy homeschooling families can garden easily and joyfully with the new aeroponic Tower Garden. The Tower Garden was developed by Tim Blank, the former chief horticulturist of Disney’s Epcot, with family fun and nutrition in mind. Ready, set, grow!
