Garden Tower Project 

What if I told you that you could grow 50 plants in 4 square feet?

Well it's possible thanks to a company called The Garden Tower Project that's based out of Indiana.

They are currently working on the second generation of the Tower that is a vertical container garden that has a composting tube builtinto it. It saves you space in two ways - First, you can grow 50 plants in 4 square feet and second there is no need for an additional compositor.

Your plants are fed and planted all within the same unit. There is currently no other product out there quite like it. Check out the video below:

 

The Garden Tower Project is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds to produce and distribute this next generation Tower. You can pledge  at several levels, each of which has rewards, but the best option is to pledge at $245, which results in a new-generation Garden Tower delivered to their front door, shipping included. Learn more about their Kickstarter campaign.
