ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (July 6, 2016) – Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community residents are enjoying the summer tending to their vertical, aeroponic tower gardens by Juice Plus+®.

Using two tower gardens that use only water and nutrients rather than dirt, residents are experimenting with growing up to 20 different herbs, plants, flowers, vegetables, or fruit. Sycamore Spring residents are currently producing tomatoes, cucumbers, and many different herbs.

“Our residents still can’t believe that these gardens grow without dirt. It is insane to all of us that these fruits and veggies can grow from water and nutrients alone,” Rhonda Mitchell, Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community’s executive director, said.

“The residents enjoy tending to the tower garden a few times a week. They love spending time outside as they watch the plants grow and produce. They are anxiously awaiting to eat them!” Mitchell said.

“Many people in this generation grew up tending their gardens every day. The tower garden brings back great memories of when our residents used to work in the yard, planting and harvesting flowers, fruits and vegetables,” Mitchell said.

“We are thrilled to provide another life enrichment opportunity for our residents at Sycamore Springs Senior Living Community. This unique aeroponic garden grows without soil, so the residents find it very intriguing, fun and enjoyable! They are looking forward for the next harvest, so they can enjoy the food it provides,” Bryan Cook, chief operating officer at Legacy Senior Living, Management Company of Sycamore Springs, said.
