Technology at O'Hare Airport
When we say technology, we mean aeroponic growing technology!

Five years of growing indoors at O'Hare is the longest running indoor vertical farm in the United States.
Become part of the solution with URBAN FARMING and get your own Tower Garden or help a school, non-profit or senior center get one!
(note:  the technology at O'Hare is the same as our backyard Tower Gardens)

An exercise physiologist and running coach in Boulder, Colorado, he ran 40 to 70 miles a week, stretched 15 minutes twice a day, and saw a massage therapist twice a month. But at the peak of the 2014 racing season, the 33-year-old athlete was nearly sidelined by tight hip flexors... He converted his office desk to a standing station and cut his sedentary time in half. In weeks, his hip muscles released. Two months later, he raced a 50-miler in Vermont in his personal-best time of eight hours, 18 minutes. "I felt great," he says.

Need more vites A, C, B6, etc?
Eat more sweet spuds!  Sweet potatoes pack a punch when it comes to providing you with your daily intake of vitamins and keeping you healthy right through the winter. An average  sweet potato  will provide you with over 100 percent of your daily requirement for  vitamin A!
