We are Garden Tower Project, a small company with big ideas right here in Bloomington, Indiana. We're committed to socially-responsible practices at every level, and our mission is no less than to help transform the face of gardening and food sustainability in our world. To us, food security is more than just growing your own food, it is about growing healthy food. In an era of rapidly rising food prices and industrial farming practices that strip our food of nutrients essential for good health, we believe the Garden Tower is one small step in empowering people towards their own food security. To this end, we plan to launch GrowingCircles as support becomes available. Moreover, support from customers and partners alike brings us closer to full-scale production of our future tower, the next generation of the ultimate patio farm -- The Garden Tower!
Our Team: Garden Tower Project is the brainchild of a few social entrepreneurs from Bloomington, Indiana AND our partners:
