I am a Registered Dietitian and have seen the damage done to the health of my patients as a result of the Standard American Diet (SAD). The rise in Obesity, Diabetes and Heart Disease, and all the gut issues. What the Standard American Diet lacks are the nutrients one can only get from daily intake of fruits and vegetables. The question was, how could I help these people not only get more access to produce but make it a regular part of their daily diet.
After learning about the Tower Gardens®, I started imagining a different future. One where fresh nutritious produce was more accessible. One where people in food deserts didn’t have to live without this necessary commodity. We know children eat more fruits and vegetables when they grow it themselves. We want rehab facilities, and prisons the ability to offer more produce to their residents to help increase a positive mental outlook. As you can see, the Tower Garden® can be beneficial in many different settings.
With the knowledge of what Tower Gardens® can do for the health of this nation, Towers for Change was born.
After going through a couple of serious health crisis’ with family members
For 18 years Shyer used the Juice Plus+® family of products to help families improve the picture of their health. One of those products is the vertical growing system called the Tower Garden®. Since its inception 8 years ago, Shyer has had a vision of how beneficial the towers could be in increasing access to nutritious produce. The one roadblock seemed to be the populations that need it the most, can’t afford it, and that is why Towers For Change was born. Please take a look at our PROJECTS, and at the various ways you can be a Towers For Change CHAMPION!
