Willow River Elementary recently installed a Tower Garden in Ms. Weiland’s 4th grade classroom. A Tower Garden is a vertical, aeroponic growing system that will grow up to 28 vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers in less than three square feet. The Tower Garden will provide students with a daily opportunity to observe, collect data and journal the growing process as they learn to maintain their classroom garden. The students will also gain an understanding of the role technology and engineering innovation plays in modern food production. With 3-4 annual harvests, students will be provided the opportunity to touch, smell and eat what they have grown and experience the pride that comes with tending to their own crop.
