Caltech dining services has established a garden on the rooftop of Chandler Cafe using vertical tower gardens. The garden grows peppers, eggplants, heads of lettuce, kale, arugula, basil and other herbs that are used in the cafe's meals. The aeroponic system will one day be fed by the condensation from the building's air conditioning units, and may include solar panels to power the pumps.
