Our Varden Living Walls and Vertical Gardens have been designed and engineered for fast installation and long service life. There are still tricks to the trade and there is no substitute for experience. Our California distributor is Elevation Living Walls and they service a very different market and climate out west than we do here in the Midwest. In their hands, our Varden components are only part of the story. They create settings and surrounds that bring their walls to life like no other. I am so proud of what they create with our system!
We are working on our own videos to help customers master the installation process and go beyond the ordinary. Our YouTube channel will be populated with “How-To’s” that will launch other creative souls on their living wall journeys. Some will be just for their own home projects and many will be a new wave of dealers, installers and distributors. The world is changing fast and vertical growing for Beauty and Food will be everywhere.
Be ready! Take lots of video, post it for others to enjoy and get creative ideas! Join us!
Our friends at Elevation Living Walls and Vertical Gardens out in Southern California have put together a fantastic backyard vertical garden in a piece of space where nothing productive was being done. Have a look at the footage that they have provided and see for yourself.
I just couldn’t resist￼ posting this because of the timing during this virus crisis and it’s outcome of home-based self-sufficiency. Not everybody is able to or would want to have a vertical garden this large but it highlights how just about any space can be utilized more productively to grow some of our own food.￼
As an inventor and product designer this application really gives our Varden product a good showing and I’m very proud to be offering it.￼
Have you ever heard of “square foot” gardening or “raised bed” gardening? They are both methods of growing your own food in small spaces to supplement our food with local, nutritious and secure leafy greens, herbs and veggies. Both methods are soil-based, meaning that the growing is done in soil as nature intended, to infuse the plants with the most taste and nutrient levels as only the soil can do.
We are excited about “vertical gardening” as a way to grow some of our food close at hand, while taking up almost zero space. We have coined the term Vardening to describe the practice. This enables people in high density urban areas to grow food on balconies, patios, sides of garages and many out of the way places not possible otherwise.
Vardening enables soil-based growing with the added benefit of knowing just how the plants were grown and what was sprayed (or not sprayed) on them. Food security is the outcome and vardening lets us harvest at time of peak plant maturity and nutrient levels, while reducing transportation and food waste.
Kids need to know how food is grown and where it comes from, now more that any time in recent history. We have become disconnected from our sources of food and therefore, control over how it is grown, what is sprayed on it and how long since harvest. Vardening gives control back to all of us and is surprisingly effective for those living in higher density urban areas of the country.
