Concerns with modern food growing and distribution
The majority of food grown for the US market is not produced in a green or sustainable way. Today’s food is often GMO, travels great distances, using fuel and electricity. It is stored in a chilled environment for a period of time, which uses more energy. It requires layers of packaging to end up in the consumers’ hands. It is sprayed with fungicides, pesticides, and herbicides, which requires more energy and pollutes the planet. Water practices for organic or conventional agriculture are extremely wasteful, which is a concern with looming water shortages worldwide. The Tower Garden is your very own Farmer’s Market, right outside your backdoor.
