Garden Tower Project
Full case study coming soon.
The Garden Tower 2 (GT2) is the flagship product created to provide households and communities access to growing healthy, nutrient dense food anywhere regardless of climate or gardening experience. This vertical container garden and vermicomposting system transforms kitchen scraps directly into organic fertilizer to support the growth of 50 to 80 plants in a small area of only 16-square feet. The GT2’s uniquely containerized nutrient cycling system increases plant productivity due to the high content of available fertilizer made available to plants by way of the patented vermicompost tube. Nearly all varieties of garden vegetables, herbs and flowers can be grown in the GT2, including tomatoes, beans, peppers, leafy greens and more. Manufactured at Burco Molding Corporation in Noblesville, Indiana, USA from materials sourced completely within the United States, the GT2 is made of domestic, non-toxic, food-grade, UV-protected, 100% recyclable, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic.
Garden Tower Project (GTP) began its pursuit of Living Product certification for the Garden Tower 2 in September 2015 as a means to further improve the company’s environmental impact and prove leadership in the container garden and plastic industries. GTP shares the LPC vision that products can be “beneficial, creating habitat, building soil, nourishing the human spirit and providing inspiration for personal, political and economic change.” We believe this vision is embodied in the design and use of the GT2. As a mutual advocate pushing markets and transforming the way consumer products are manufactured, used and promoted, GTP is honored to be a participant of the LP50 and have access to ILFI’s leadership.
