Bravo Chicago! Way to go! It warms my heart to see this visionary project. These look like the same aeroponics towers that created the spectacular rooftop garden atop the Bell, Book & Candle Restaurant in Manhattan. We will see many more of these highly productive vertical gardens in the future.
Many thanks to Seedstock.com for making my day. It's a great "get" by a very cool website.
