Thanks to Barb Butler from Juice Plus+ for the donation of a Tower Garden to the Okangan Boys and Girls Clubs Cameron Park Daycare. Tower Garden by Juice Plus+ is a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system. It is 5 feet tall and can grow up to 20 plants; no weeding, tilling, kneeling or getting dirty. The Tower Garden makes it convenient to eat fresher, healthy food. The produce is better-tasting, better-looking so the kids will want to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Cameron Park is the first club with a Garden Tower kit which will grow vegetables, herbs, flowers and many fruits. The kit comes with everything needed to start growing. The kids helped Barb set up the Garden Tower; it was so easy.
Barb will be supporting the staff throughout the first couple of growing cycles to ensure that the group has a successful growing experience. When the weather gets warm it can be moved outside to grow strawberries, the kid’s favourite fruit!
