If aeroponic gardening utilizes a natural source of a broad spectrum of minerals and trace elements, it allows nutrient-dense food to be available in areas that might otherwise be food deserts.
For instance, the Chicago O'Hare airport recently introduced vertical towers to make freshly harvested, locally grown produce available to the airport's restaurants right in the terminals where they are served. With practically no time or distance from plant to plate, fruits and vegetables maintain more of their nutrients. You can grow a large variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits including everything from mesclun to melons. It’s a highly efficient use of space and resources as the towers recycle water and consequently use considerably less water than an in-ground garden. Without the need for refrigeration, your produce could hardly be fresher. It can be a great way to grow nutrient dense food in a very small space from backyard to rooftop.
John Mooney, owner of Manhattan restaurant Bell Book and Candle, has been one of the primary pioneers of aeroponic vertical gardening as the first chef in the U.S. to bring food from “rooftop to table.” What Mooney grows on an ordinary city rooftop just up the stairs from the Greenwich Village dining room is bountiful enough to offer dishes such as a “living-leaf salad” to an 80-seat restaurant for ten months a year.
Aeroponic gardening is a cutting edge and revolutionary new way to bring remineralized foods to your rooftop! Vertical, aeroponic growing systems allow you to grow a whole cornucopia of vegetables, herbs, and flowers with no backyard and minimal space. The system is perfect for urban and suburban dwellers seeking fresh, locally sourced, and nutrient-dense food.
