Aeroponic Tower Garden at New Milford Hospital

New Milford Hospital’s innovative aeroponic tower garden delivers fresh herbs and vegetables for its award-winning dining program.

“Recent studies by the University of Mississippi have found plants grow 30 percent faster in aeroponic towers than with traditional gardening. Gold was harvesting on Tuesday the third crop of 20 lettuce plants. As a plant is harvested, a new start for the same vegetable or herb is placed in the tower cup, bare roots down.”
