Safe, compact, and soilless, the Tower Garden is an innovative growing system that is perfect for the classroom. Students witness first-hand how plants grow, while learning the importance of sustainability, healthy eating, and giving back to the community. YME gave away 10 Tower Gardens last year to Tulsa area teachers, and we’ve heard so many stories of teachers boosting engagement and learning with their gardens!
“I have seen firsthand, with the Tower Garden in my classroom, what it does for children. They are more eager to try vegetables. It gives them ownership of their food.” – Diana
“I love teaching third grade science, and we love our Tower Garden…We’ve already applied for a school salad bar to use our fresh produce!” – Julianne
“Once it’s in the classroom, it becomes a focal point,” says Jacob Schellenberg, YME president and founder. “It creates curiosity in the kids, and with that curiosity comes the chance for learning.”
The Tower Garden comes with more than 30 lesson plans to help integrate it into the classroom. The Garden can help teach everything from the water cycle to nutrition, and even simple business principles.
