Giving more people everywhere access to healthier food, the urban farming movement is improving lives by literally changing the way people eat.
And for more than a decade, Tower Farms has played a big role in urban farming, empowering communities, entrepreneurs, and agents of social change to easily and sustainably grow nutritious produce.
Because real food shouldn’t be a luxury enjoyed by few. It should be available to us all.
Traditional farming is, by definition, hard labor. But Tower Farms makes things easy by automating watering cycles, eliminating weeding and digging, minimizing pest risk, and more.
In fact, many current Tower Farmers have no previous agricultural experience. That’s how simple running a Tower Farm operation is.
You’ll have professional support, too. Our Tower Farms team, which includes Tower Garden developer Tim Blank and current Tower Farm owners, has helped plan, establish, and manage more than 300 successful projects. So you’ll be in capable hands.
The advanced aeroponic technology that powers Tower Farms yields as much as 30 percent more produce up to three times faster compared to conventional growing methods. In fact, you can expect to grow most herbs and leafy greens from seed to harvest in just five weeks.
And by growing a Tower Farm, you’ll also save about 98 percent more water. (Considering experts predict that two-thirds of the world’s population will experience water shortages by 2025, water preservation is a big deal.)
Tower Farms also use 90 percent less space than traditional farms, which means you can grow more crops without paying for more property. Depending on how you configure your farm, you could grow as many as 250,000 plants per acre!
Tower Farms use the same compact, vertical growing technology that powers Tower Garden. That means you can start your farm virtually anywhere. Our farmerpreneurs are already growing in airports, on rooftops, in deserts, on islands, in greenhouses, and other unconventional locations within their communities.
That last part is important.
By growing close to the community you serve — rather than on a piece of land in the middle of nowhere — you reduce “food miles,” or the distance that food is shipped. The result is fresher, more flavorful produce (and a smaller carbon footprint).
So don’t be surprised if you become the favorite farmer of locavores, farmers’ market shoppers, and restaurant owners!
