OHare Tower Garden
Growing Organic produce close to where it is consumed is becoming very popular!
Take a look at these links (below) about the Vertical garden next to the restaurant that serves the produce, in the O’Hare Airport.
Remember that Aquaponics is superior and easier. Aeroponics requires added chemicals that are constantly monitored to keep in the proper balance.
Because the system can’t consume or balance the chemicals and byproducts, it produces waste chemicals and water that has to be thrown out or purified. This makes for a more expensive and more wasteful way of getting your greens! Still, it grows some fresh beautiful plants, 13 crops a year, and is much better than eating plants that are grown weeks ago and shipped lots of miles to get to us.
