BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has announced that the North Dakota Department of Agriculture has funding available for schools to incorporate a hydroponic tower garden into their curriculum.
“The North Dakota Department of Agriculture is seeking schools interested in bringing this STEM learning opportunity into their classrooms,” Goehring said. “Schools will have until May 2024 to grow their tower garden, but we hope the tower gardens continue to be used by students long after the end of the grant period.”
Schools interested in receiving a hydroponic tower garden may go to https://www.ndda.nd.gov/towergarden for full details and to fill out an application. Applications must be submitted in electronic form by Friday, Jan. 5, 2024. Successful applicants will be notified by Jan. 12, 2024, and towers will be delivered by Jan. 31, 2024.
