A short time ago I received an email from Tom Tlusty*, one of the partners and co-founders of the Garden Tower Project. He wanted to let me know that the project has not only continued on, but that things seem to really be taking off for them. They currently have a Kickstarter (crowd-funding) campaign that’s been going gangbusters ever since launching. They have actually surpassed their goal already – but as Tom explained, they are still welcoming any and all additional contributions since it will help to ensure the success of the project.
What’s cool is that all those who pledge $10 or more will be entered in a draw for the chance to win one of three Garden Towers!
* (In case you are wondering, there was a typo in the spelling of Tom’s last name in the video above)
Seeing one of their latest videos (above), I’m even more excited about what these guys are doing. I’ve been a proponent of integrated vermi-gardening ever since setting up my first vermicomposting trench, and love the idea of using a vertical system with such a small footprint.
If you want more information, I recommend visiting the Garden Tower Project website. You will find a link to their Kickstarter campaign there if you are interested. I have included another video of theirs below as well.
Now if ONLY they could make these available up here in Canada!
