Tower Garden for Senior Citizens

30426880_15283228670_r.jpeg
This Go Fund Me page was established to assist the New Fairfield Senior Center in acquiring funds to purchase an aeroponic growing system. The seniors will be able to grow up to 28 plants all year long with this Tower Garden since it includes indoor growing lights. This lifetime machine is very sustainable and uses 30% less water than a traditional garden, in addition to no soil and no weeding. Please take a look at this video that explains how the Tower Garden works.

Gardening with this aeroponic system is beneficial for seniors in a number of ways:

1) Increases levels of physical activity to help with mobility and flexibility
2) Increases motor skills
3) Promotes social interaction and relaxation
4) Provides seniors an opportunity to connect with the community/schools
5) Provides nutritious, home-grown produce

We would love to give seniors in New Fairfield this unique opportunity and expose them to sustainable growing practices that is manageable and allows everyone to participate. 

To get started the following would be a great set up: 

Tower Garden Stater Kit: $525.00 
Tower Garden Rolling Cart: $69.00
Tower Garden Indoor Growing Light Kit: $219.00
Tower Garden Supplies (Growing Solution, etc.): $50.00

Shipping: approximately $50.00 

Tax Exemption

Funding over the goal amount could go toward supplies (seed, growing solution) for the next season.
