Aeroponic Vertical Gardening success depends on two things, water and air.
You take your glass and put it under your kitchen sink faucet and turn it on. A stream of clear, cool water fills your glass, you raise it to your lips and drink a big, satisfying gulp.
Refreshing for you…but your plants may disagree.
Tap water may be safe for you and me (some may disagree), however it’s not always the best water for plant growth. In this post you’ll learn why – and more important, what you can do about it. Continue reading
Vertical Garden Urban Farming
Our Aeroponic Vertical Garden has been in our greenhouse since mid-November growing fresh, toxin free vegetables for our salads and green smoothies this winter.
It is nice to just go outside with a pair of scissors and pick fresh greens when we need them. Salad greens don’t come any fresher than that!
This year we are growing three kinds of lettuce, Swiss Chard, Chives, Parsley, and lots of Kale on our vertical garden.
We grow the kale to use in our morning smoothies. We use a vegan protein shake mix. Each morning we add kale to our smoothie and sometime Swiss Chard for variety. We also like to add chia seeds, two teaspoons of olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Some mornings we also add some cinnamon. Continue reading
Vertical Garden Grow Lights
Winter and gardening don’t pair together well – at least not traditionally.
But gardening with an aeroponic vertical garden isn’t exactly traditional. After all, it produces plants almost automatically, without soil.
We went out into our garden to check our Vertical Garden on the hottest day of the year so far.
The outside temperature was over 80 degrees to find our Vertical Garden plants were all wilted and drooping!
All the months of growing these vegetables and they now looked like they were dead!
Vertical Garden Mistakes and Lessons Learned
In the spring, we had two vertical gardens that were producing well inside our home. We wanted them outside where they could grow with natural light and air circulation.
We had kale, collards, mustard greens, chard and parsley that were Continue reading
What do you do when you need a tomato cage for your Vertical Garden and just can’t afford to purchase one?
You become resourceful and creative. That is what Vanessa Salazar did.
She needed a tomato cage, right now, for her plants. She did not have the funds at that time to purchase a new one.
A trip to the lumber yard to purchase some PVC water line pipe, and to the Dollar Store to purchase some hula hoops and some duct tape.
Vanessa put the PVC pipe into the holes where the Tower Garden supports normally would go. She than duck taped the four hula hoops to them, making a homemade tomato cage.
Her creativeness to solve her needs is something that Red Green would be proud of. Great job thinking out of the box Vanessa!

Today is Earth Day. Today is the day we celebrate our relationship with Mother Earth. Today we live in a world that is full of toxins. They are created by today’s high tech society and its dependence on chemicals. In our daily activates we are using products that are chemical based. These chemicals are in the air, in the water, in the soil, in our food, in nearly everything product or tool that we use.
More than ever it is important for us to eat a healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables. Buying organic is so important. It is the way that you will get the least amount of toxins into your body from your food. You can help yourself to become healthier by growing your own food in an aeroponic growing system that has no soil and uses a all natural plant food that consists of natural earth minerals and elements.
