This year at Lothrop we were able to use new and innovative plant technology to called a Tower Garden which takes rockwool and put them in the correct environment to thrive. The Tower Garden is designed to Grow Young Minds. This is a real-life teaching tools to show the children the importance of eating healthy and how to grow their own food. It makes it a better experience for the youth because they get to grow their own vegetables and fruits and learn about agriculture. The Tower Garden cost less then cost of someone traveling the produce from all around the world.
