Research has long shown a positive relationship between school garden programs and higher test scores. And now, with Tower Farms, it’s never been easier for teachers — from pre-K to post-grad — to cultivate plants in class.

Whether you start small or go big,

Tower Garden technology can help you:

  • Engage your class with a hands-on, project-based learning experience that can improve school attendance and student test performance

  • Grow where the learning happens, whether that’s in a classroom, greenhouse, laboratory, or somewhere else

  • Eliminate common growing pains — our aeroponic farming systems lower the likelihood of bugs and don't use soil (so, no messy students!)

  • Elevate diets as well as minds as students learn about the benefits of healthy eating

  • Farm for the whole school year, not just during warmer months, with an indoor operation

  • Support your existing curriculum using our 30+ free, CCSS- and NGSS-aligned lesson plans and learning materials on a variety of subjects

Classroom Gardens

You can start growing today with a garden in your classroom, or on your campus, indoors or out. With Tower Gardens in over 6000 schools across the country, it is the number one gardening tool used to foster a dynamic classroom environment that includes S.T.E.A.M learning.

School Farms

School Farms engage the whole campus and community in healthy and sustainable living, promoting a socially responsible culture. They are great tools for agriculture data collection projects at high schools and Universities for the future development of agriculture.

Here are just a few reasons we think you’ll love growing Tower Garden in your classroom.

1. You’ll grow more in less time and with fewer resources.

Tower Garden uses aeroponic technology, which—compared to soil gardening—has been shown to increase yields by as much as 30% and triple the speed of plant growth, while using only 10% of the water and space.

2. You can grow inside the classroom.

LED indoor grow lights allow you to garden indoors all school year long, which means bodies (and minds) don't have to leave your learning environment to grow. Tower Garden Home includes the grow lights. You can also add LED indoor grow lights to your Tower Garden FLEX Growing System.

3. You’ll have less mess.

Compared to traditional gardening, there’s less hassle and cleanup with Tower Garden, because it doesn’t use soil.

4. You can move it wherever learning is happening.

With the dolly, you can wheel Tower Garden from the classroom to the cafeteria to the playground—and pretty much anywhere else your students are!

5. You’ll get growing support.

Lesson plans, growing guides, FAQs and more—the Tower Garden website is packed with useful information. Plus, Customer Service is just a click or call away, happy to help troubleshoot any problem you might have.

6. You’ll get free access to lesson plans.

With 30 CCSS- and NGSS-aligned lesson plans and learning materials for Pre-K through 7th grade, incorporating Tower Garden into your curriculum will be easy.
