  1. Yes it has been quite a busy year. We launched a new product line at Aeroponic Global Initiatives. A stand alone growing tower with 30, 60, and up to 90 plant sites in a 24″ diameter space with a centrally located closed loop water and nutrient system. This expandable system along with our commercial systems means we can now handle the home grower as well as the large commercial greenhouse grower. Please visit our web site at http://www.agifarms.com. If you have any questions please contact me by phone at (855) 514-1191 or by email at [email protected]. Thank You
    Sincerely
