Our innovative Urban Growing Club program lets schools grow their very own fresh fruits and veggies right in the classroom, using cutting-edge aeroponic vertical farming Tower Garden technology.
With the Tower Garden method, your students can effortlessly cultivate nutrient-packed produce all year round, while using minimal water and energy, and absolutely no pesticides. It's the perfect way to bring the wonders of urban farming to your school community!
Enrol today and provide your students with a hands-on learning experience and cross-curricular learning opportunities in Biology, Chemistry, horticulture, sustainability and business skills. What's more, you'll be helping to drive healthy eating habits, develop green fingers, and encourage an appreciation for the environment.
What does a school receive?
To run the Urban Growing Club in schools with minimal effort, we provide all the necessary equipment and resources to ensure a successful and engaging experience for both teachers and students. Our TowerFarms are easy to set up and maintain, and we provide remote maintenance to make it even more effortless.
Our video lessons are designed to be accessible to both adults and students, making it easy for teachers to incorporate the club into their curriculum and for students to take ownership of the process.
With over 7000 schools in the USA already using our TowerFarms, we have seen many positive stories of success and wonderment in classrooms. We are excited to bring this experience to more schools and empower students to be the main drivers behind the club and produce amazing plants.
How does the system work?
The school receives three aeroponic towers that work by recirculating nutrient-dense water over the plant's roots every hour.
Essentially giving the plants the perfect dinner, every moment of the day.
3 highly efficient LED lights run down the tower and over the plants, providing them with easily enough light for all types of growing.
5% water usage compared to normal growing. 3 times faster growth rate, 30 % bigger plants and as nutrient dense as any soil growing.
Did you know that the average lettuce has travelled 1200 miles, is 5 days old and lost 30% of it's nutrients. With classroom growing it's food feet not miles, roots on fresh plants that grow super fast.
Add some excitement to Membership of the Urban Growing Club by visiting a commercial Tower Farm
Our video demonstrates that kids absolutely love this experience. Your students will get hands-on lessons on planting, maintaining and harvesting produce, used in a commercial farm. It gives them an understand of the business aspects of urban growing.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for schools in the UK to promote environmental sustainability and social responsibility. By growing fresh produce with a Tower Garden in schools, students can learn about sustainable agriculture practices, reduce food waste, and contribute to SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 13 (Climate Action).

Here's what our Seedleaders have to say...
This was a very immersive and interesting course -- a lot of self-learning to be done on your own to really understand and put together into practice.
- JANE DOE
I really enjoyed the course with practical tools that you can implement and enhance your learning experience. Recommend this course to anyone looking to start a journey in urban growing.
- CATHERINE BROWN
This has been an exceptional course and I have put my heart and soul in to it. Primarily because I am fully committed to improving my wellbeing and reducing my carbon footprint. Now I look ahead to putting everything I've learnt into practice.
If you are venturing into aeroponics, this is the course for you. It's easy to digest and the . Thanks, team of course and Coursera.
