Through a Career and Technical Education grant from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, a Tower Garden has been added to the Clearwater High School Family and Consumer Science (FACS) classroom. The Tower Garden uses aeroponic technology to grow multiple plants without dirt in a small indoor space. With free access to lesson plans and learning materials, FACS instructor Christy Johnson is enthusiastic about the opportunities for her students. “I am most excited about growing our own herbs and greens to use in culinary classes, including being more competitive in ProStart challenges with fresh vegetables and herbs not found locally.”
