Here is compact and easy way to grow food on your patio; simple, low tech, yet highly productive. You can grow all kinds of greens and veggies in a small space. The Garden tower has a center tube with a worm composting system so keeping up the fertility and yields is easy. Just toss you kitchen scraps and junk mail in the tube and let the worms feed your plants. Marjory Wildcraft meets up with John Fry in Texas who explains how it all works.
Marjory has two of these units; one for her research center in Texas, and one for a school where she teaches young kids “Life Skills”. We will keep you posted on how things grow.
