Gardening, Rehabilitation, Outreach & Wellness.
AboutFace-USA® pairs students and special needs individuals with military veterans to grow produce together, giving them social interaction, education and an opportunity to succeed. They learn the benefit of Aeroponic Tower Gardening. A Tower Garden® is a state-of-the-art vertical, aeroponic, garden-growing system that uses sunlight (or plant lights), electricity, nutrients and water to grow vegetables, herbs, fruits or flowers in a three square foot area, indoors or outdoors. This project is meant to allow veterans to be role models and to take a leadership role in the education of others regarding gardening, marketing, business finances and the value of community involvement.
An advanced form of hydroponics, aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment rather than soil. Aeroponic systems use water, liquid nutrients and a soil-less growing medium to quickly and efficiently grow more colorful, tastier, better smelling and incredibly nutritious produce.
