Seagate Food Bank ~ Vertical Garden

It is our mission at The Seagate Food Bank to not only help feed the hungry in our region, but also to help teach them how to feed themselves. We are focus a lot of our energy, effort and resources in developing tools and strategies that will help feed the hungry but more importantly them feed themselves for the long term.

One such project is our vertical garden. This vertical garden is built in an urban environment between two buildings and features rows of interlocking pots in which we grow our produce. The grow towers (as we call them) are watered primarily via water barrels. In a nut shell, we have a garden which can be placed on top of any type of surface, gravel, grass and blacktop.
