What’s the tea on the tower trees in the media center? These machines grow plants like lettuce, arugula, and basil. They have a set time to turn on their lights and water the plants. After school, visitors to AHS can spot the glowing lights. The tower trees were on display at Parent/Teacher conferences this fall. The strange-looking contraptions were donated by Rolling Hills Bank and Trust. 

Media center specialist Laurie Parrott said “they thought it would be a good place to display them for everyone to see.” Parrott said the towers were brought in about a week ago. There are different labels around the towers of what is growing. There are multiple types of lettuce, kale, arugula, and sweet basil currently blooming in the media center.
