What a great day at the Boys and Girls Club in Little Village outside of Chicago, IL.  The last few weeks were hot however, the tower garden survived.

The kids were excited to see cucumbers and tomatoes growing.  We harvested a cucumber and had a small feast with it.

It was so great to see the kids excited about what they had grown.


In addition to this, our lesson for the day was about flowers.  The parts and how they all work to produce the fruit.

We are all learning and its wonderful to see the kids getting excited about this topic.


Enjoy our pictures!



Hey everyone, I hope this finds you well.  I am so excited to report the tower garden growth a the boys and girls club in Little Village outside of Chicago IL.

The following images are week from 6 and 1/2 weeks from the planting day of June 1st, 2016.


All the kids were excited and taking care of the tower.  I visit 2 times a month with a tower garden lesson to teach the kids about gardening.

The lessons are found on tower talk.  Just search for it.


We are all looking forward to seeing tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash to grow in a month or so.


This tower garden is doing great!  The kids are so engaged with each lesson too.

Enjoy the following pictures.
