Ask Renee: Compost condo redux 

Ask Renee works some condo composting magic.

A couple weeks ago, Brucks2 asked about no-cost ways to compost in a condo. I still don’t have a no-cost option, but I found the coolest thing I have ever seen to compost and garden in a confined space, like an apartment or condo. You have got to check out the Garden Tower 2 from Garden Tower Project in Bloomington, IN!

The Garden Tower 2 allows you to vertically grow 50 plants AND to compost your kitchen scraps. The best part, you don't even have to touch the compost for your garden to benefit. Your scraps go in a compost tube that runs through the center of the tower so that nutrients feed the plants when you water!

Speaking of water, the Garden Tower 2 doesn’t waste any. Water that runs through the system is collected, along with all the nutrient-rich compost run-off, in a drawer at the bottom that can be poured back over the top or used on other plants.

Garden Tower Project is “home-grown” in Indiana – everything from development to engineering to manufacturing is done right here in our state.

But wait, there’s more! Since I am Ask Renee, I asked Garden Tower Project if they would extend their Summer Sale just for you since I’m not getting this email to you until the day the sale is supposed to end. Now you can order the Garden Tower 2 and save $60 with code GTPAskRenee (now through July 31). So, Brucks2, it’s not no cost, but I did negotiate a deal for you for the coolest, locally-made composting garden around! (P.S. That discount deal also includes free shipping. Hooray!)
