Welcome to the School Seeds Program! 

As a former middle school educator who transitioned into the world of health and wellness, I've always envisioned bringing organic gardening into schools. However, I repeatedly encountered objections such as, "There is no one available in the summer to tend to the garden, kids won't engage during the growing season, and the maintenance is too demanding.

The challenges of limited space, manpower, and seasonal constraints were just too much—until the game-changing discovery of Tower Gardens. 


The result? An innovative, BOCES-approved Program that brings organic gardening inside the classroom year-round in a way that's educational, sustainable, and transformative.

Tower Gardens are vertical aeroponic gardens that grow indoors year-round only taking up 30” of space, making them a perfect fit for a classroom. With Tower Gardens (LEARN MORE HERE LINK TO TG SECTION), students can foster hands-on learning right inside their classrooms, seamlessly integrating gardening into their daily coursework. Fueling both my passions for teaching and health, I've crafted an innovative, BOCES-approved program known as School Seeds. At its core, the School Seeds Program harnesses the cutting-edge technology the Tower Gardens to propel project-based learning and fortify academic standards across various disciplines. The School Seeds program is a comprehensive journey that begins with: 1: Collaborative planning between our team, teachers, and administration. Together, we tailor a custom fit for the program to fit your needs. 2: Tower Gardens are delivered directly to the school. 3: Teachers are then provided with a wealth of resources, including detailed information about the build day, materials for students to familiarize themselves with the Towers, Lesson Plan ideas, checklists, and how-to resources. 4: On build day, we explore the differences between vertical gardening and traditional gardening and the impacts it has on the environment. The discussion is then tailored to suit the specific focus of each class. 5. Next we facilitate students in transforming the boxes into living towers. They build the Towers, plant them, fill with with water and nutrients, and set the automated timers. The culmination is an exhilarating moment marked by a big drum roll, followed by the excitement of plugging in the Towers to witness the illumination of lights and the soothing sound of water flowing. 6. Following this, there's professional development for both staff and students on how to care for the Tower Gardens. Teachers receive my personal contact information, ensuring continuous support throughout the academic year. They have full access to me and the team, with the option to reach out via cell phone, FaceTime, Zoom, or email for any questions or concerns. 7. The School Seeds Program extends beyond the build day; teachers benefit from ongoing assistance via email, receiving additional resources, videos, and diverse lesson plans for seamless integration of Tower Gardens into their daily teachings. This comprehensive support includes videos on harvesting produce and creative suggestions for using the harvested items, along with other engaging ideas. Embark on an exhilarating journey of cultivating minds and nurturing growth through the School Seeds Program. Together, let's craft an educational experience that transcends the ordinary, instilling a passion for learning, cultivating a foundation for lifelong health and nutrition, and ensuring students thrive both academically and physically. Together, we will grow our leaders one seedling at a time.
