DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. (June 3, 2016) – Grace Senior Living of Douglasville residents have kicked off 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. Grace Senior Living residents are currently producing lettuce, tomato, basil and cucumbers.

“It is a miracle to be able to grow vegetables without planting them in the ground. It is so relaxing to hear the water running while watching them grow. We love being able to pick the lettuce right off and eat it in the process,” Karen Cabral, Executive Director at Grace Senior Living, said.

“The residents tend to the tower garden about three to four times a week. They enjoy spending time outside as they watch the plants grow and produce. They are anxiously awaiting to eat them!” Cabral said.

“Many people in this generation grew up tending their gardens every day. Having the tower garden gives them something to do and something to look forward to. It is very therapeutic for all of us,” Cabral said.

“We are thrilled to provide another life enrichment opportunity for our residents at Grace Senior Living. 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 eat the food it provides,” Bryan Cook, chief operating officer of Legacy Senior Living, Management Company of Grace Senior Living, said.
