How large of an area do I need for the Tower Garden?

The Vertical Tower Garden is very compact and will only need 4 square feet of space. 

Aside from the Tower, what will I get?

The set comes with crop varieties, which we have known through the years to be suitable for the country's current season. For example: local spinach, arugula, basil, lettuce, eggplant and red okra, bush beans, green chillies, tulsi, amazon spinach, red spinach, blue ternate, cherry tomato, java mint, saluyot.  Note that plants that are unavailable will be replaced by similar or better variety crops. The Tower also includes a built-in composter and waste converter with uses vermiculture or worms.  Aside from these, you also get a water collection basin and compost activator.  This will allow you to compost, grow your crops, and continue to use the towers long after your first harvest.  Our technicians will install the Tower for you.  They will give you some training and guidelines. DowntoEarth will provide you with instructional videos and instructions both in English and Tagalog. 

Does the Tower attract flies or emit any odor?

No not at all. It does exactly the opposite. The Garden Tower is sealed and the potting media contains beneficial microbes that hasten decomposition so there is no foul odor and/or flies. The lower part of the Tower is very similar lo a hydroponic system but it is grown on living soil and runs on organic liquid fertilizer tea.  The tea you will collect in the basin underneath the unit can also be a handy natural bug repellant, which you can use for your other plants.

Why is it a bit pricey?  Do I get good value for my money?

In fact the Tower is most practical.  Your Tower will have 55 to 60 young vegetables and herbs within it, which is already worth at least P9000.  Not only this, you also get a vermi-composting system and worms.  This will allow you to make a SPECIAL ORGANIC VERMI FERTILIZER and bug repellant for your other plants.

Will I have a difficult time using it? 

No.  The Towers were built for dummies. It will basically handle itself, all you need is to water the Tower and add compost to feed the worms.

What good will the Towers do? 

Your Tower Garden will not only give you food and compost, you will also be doing your bit of good for the planet. More than 50% of the household waste in the Philippines ends up in overloaded landfills,  generating methane gas.  Our country is in fact,  the second polluter in the world, with waste that is bigger than the United States. R.A 9003, the Solid Waste Management Act requires all business in the Philippines to compost all biodegradable waste on site. All our existing landfills are full.  With the Tower Garden, you can utilize all organic waste and feed it to the Tower.  You then convert this to organic fertilizer.  Waste becomes a resource, which you can use to grow plants.

Why buy from you?  What makes your system unique?

  1. Our system allows households to use the compost and liquid fertilizer for plants on site right away without the need to bury in soil;
  2. The entire system can be integrated to a vermi-composting system;
  3. Your purchase comes with a potted herb and vegetable starter kit;
  4. Our crop varieties have been tested throughout the years, and guaranteed to grow under Philippine weather conditions.


What is a Composting Bucket?
