It all started with a little seed and a teachers enthusiasm for growing fresh food. Bethune Academy has turned their Hydro Harvest Garden into a treasure! Linda, you are an inspiration to us and to all of the children that have come to know you, the school and the little garden that could...
Another grrrreatCelebration for BA! As you know, our resident farmer/master gardener Linda Mobley has been our inspiration to"grow".....
Linda transformed the garden and our Environmental Engineering focus for STEM into an Economics Project; thus, through encouragement for her to write the project and submit it for the Governor's Award for Economic Excellence,her project has been accepted as one of the projects to be considered for the big award. She will be treated like royalty on May 11th at EPCOT completing the day of learning and celebration with a Cirque de Soleil show!
Wow! I am so proud of Linda and we truly are indebted to her for her leadership and collegiality with our learning experiences for farming and gardening.....and "growing"!
Take a look one of our School Gardens. This Garden is for Eckerd College in St Petersburg. The staff of the College and the Bon Appetite Management Staff have decided to grow their own! We have made many trips across the Sunshine Skyway delivering our fresh pesticide free lettuce and other seasonally fresh veggies. Well, I guess they decided they can save a lot of money and incorporate the Hydro Harvest Farm garden into their curriculum. Your School can do this too. Our School Gardens can be customized to your grant or school budget. Just call John 941-915-7208 or email email@example.com and let us know how we can help.
The Victory Garden has 12 Towers, all automatic. With 48 stackable pots that have growing space for 192 plants vertically, it also has 12 Ground Pots for lots more growing space. It comes with Pots, Ground Pots, Nutrient, Growing media, PVC, tubing, upgraded emitters, connectors, pump and timer. The conduit used for the poles to erect towers and the water reservoir do not come with this garden when shipped, but the conduit will be included when delivered locally. A 44 gallon garbage container can be used as a nutrient reservoir. The submersible pump with upgraded emitters will make it easy for you to add many more towers to this system. While supplies last, gently used pots are available. This will save you $240.00 over a new Victory Garden, your best value.
We are approved vendors with most School Districts, or we will become an approved vendor. We will submit an Invoice that will list all of the costs so you can get a Purchase Order. We have worked with many schools and are quite familiar with the process. If your grant doesn't cover this cost, we will work on a great garden to meet your needs. Our automatic gardens for schools start as little as $480.00!
