I was lucky to grow up in my grandparents’ huge vegetable garden. I have had less success finding the time and sunny space to grow much myself. Two years ago our family was inspired while visiting the “Living with the Land” ride at Disney’s Epcot Centre, which highlights innovative methods of farming with little land and water.

This week a friend sent me the link to a personal use garden that replicates similar techniques. It is called the Tower Garden. They retail presently for around $600, but I have no doubt a similar system could be constructed, if one had the interest, for less. Meanwhile families can save money and benefit their health by growing their own fresh, organic produce with minimal time, land and water. Win, win, win . Here is a direct link to a video that demonstrates.
