Fort Worth Students Are Growing Fresh Herbs and Vegetables with Aeroponic Systems

February 13, 2019

Texans Can Academy – Fort Worth Westcreek joined with Fit and Faithful Living to teach the students about aeroponic systems. Students recently built an aeroponic vertical tower garden and planted fresh herbs and vegetables. The garden is currently in their school where students can watch the progress of the growing herbs and vegetables.

Aeroponics allows plants, with the absence of soil, to be nourished and watered with a system built into the tower and through the suspended roots, allowing for more oxygen and nutrient intake through the plant roots, limiting disease and pathogens for higher density growing, and reducing waste by recycling water. Tower gardens can grow up to 20 vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers in less than three square feet in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Fit and Faithful is a local nonprofit organization and aims to educate and encourage individuals to adopt a healthy lifestyle. They aim to expand the use of tower gardens in home and schools throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area in order for them to produce healthy and fresh food.
