Bring the Outdoors into your Classroom

"Nutritower has provided our school a unique opportunity to continue gardening throughout Montreal's long winters.  The tower is majestic to our children and has helped ignite an interest and respect for botany consistent with the Montessori philosophy."

Learning to appreciate the wonders of gardening can begin right in the classroom.

When growing outdoors, the best growing months are when students aren’t in the classroom.

That’s where our indoor gardening system comes into play. With the Nutritower, students can benefit from a year-round hands-on learning experience that few activities can replicate.

Our “Seed to Harvest” program includes

A pedagogical package complete with lesson plans, reading list, introduction for teachers and a news letter template to send home to parents.

Here are just a few examples of how the Nutritower can be used in your curriculum today:

Teaching Redefined

By bringing the Nutritower into the classroom environment, students get to understand how food is grown and how nutrition works. The true joy of eating a fresh tomato that students have nurtured from seed to maturity will not be taken for granted. It always puts a smile on their face.

The Nutritower grows plentiful produce using little more space than a classroom corner. And best of all, it does so without any soil, harsh chemicals, or difficult maintenance which means teachers can focus on the thing that matters most: teaching children.
