PAST KNOWLEDGE SESSIONS

GROW FOOD INDOORS with Dodie Glass, RN

At this Knowledge Session we were able to learn about how you don’t need to be a gardener or even have a patch of ground to grow fresh greens, herbs and more, indoor and all year long. With the Tower Garden and LED lights, you can grow healthy plants inside in a sustainable, soil-free, space-saving system! And, while you grow, you’ll be supported by an amazing online community and the Tower Garden support team without the learning curve or time commitment of traditional gardening. 

Our speaker was Ms. Dodie Glass, a retired Registered Nurse with no gardening experience. She has been with the Tower Garden/Juice Plus company for 19 years. Her background as a nurse and her own personal research led Dodie to join the company and work to further the company’s mission statement which is, “Inspire Healthy Living – in our homes, in our communities and around the world.” The addition of the Tower Garden to Juice Plus provided another component to support healthy living with indoor and outdoor growing. It has been around for about 10 years and has provided Dodie with fresh produce all year round.
