As of September 2016, GreenTowers LLC is no longer incorporated as a Pennsylvania company. However, Dustin and Mike are open and excited to speak about new project ideas! So please don't hesitate to reach out to us here on GreenTowersUSA.com—whatever comes next for us, we will be sure to share it here as well. Much Love,

GreenTowers was founded in 2012 with the goal of using design to reconnect people with nature and with their food, helping everyone to see and appreciate the interconnectedness between our planet’s ecosystems and our human food systems. Our world’s food systems face many challenges—food waste, overuse of pesticides and herbicides, monoculture, nutrient waste eutrophication, soil health, groundwater depletion, and increasingly unpredictable climate patterns. GreenTowers aims to work in bringing awareness to these critical issues by inspiring individuals to think about their relationships with food and uproot the status quo.
