These are really fantastic! But at $500 a pop, wow, who can afford that? It's a really novel idea though!

Cabbage Hill Farm in Mt. Kisco 30 minutes north of Manhattan has an impressive hydroponic operation using water from fish tanks (fish raised for local restaurant chefs) filled with nutrients from the fish droppings. It's totally self contained and self sustaining, with similarly wonderful results as Bell, Book & Candle's rooftop. It's also featured in my book Hudson River Valley Farms


Great story.. about the cost of the system: maybe somebody should collaborate more on building one of these on a DIY site.

Re: DIY ... consider all the options: It can't be ordinary PVC pipe. You're growing food.

Benefits outway the cost when you can have fresh, vine-ripened produce in 4 weeks most of the year is not all year when you think outside the box. Plus I've found a way to spread the cost over a 12 month period.


Glad to see the great coverage for these Tower Gardens! We are working with the designer's company, Future Growing, to provide these for residential gardening. They're amazing and lots of fun for the whole family!

Let me know if you'd like more info!

$500? Guess I'll get to digging and do it the old fashioned way... :-(


go to - they have a monthly option for $43/month - very affordable.
