New York restaurateur John Mooney has redefined garden with a rooftop that is now a home to melons, mint, garbanzo, tomatoes, lettuce, and much more. He is the first chef in the U.S. to grow all of his produce on a rooftop farm. Their produce is grown in sixty vertical tower aeroponic systems, designed and engineered by Future Growing LLC., of Orlando, Florida. Unlike traditional gardening methods, aeroponic uses a pH balanced ionic mineral based water solution that is pumped through a central tower that comes in contact with the plants’ roots. The Tower Garden™ uses a closed system technology to recycle 100% of the nutrients and water minimizing waste.
