The ZipGrow™ Education Rack is a hydroponic system utilizing our patented ZipGrow™ Towers. This easy-to-use system is mounted to its own modular rolling frame bearing abundant harvests for many varieties of leafy greens and herbs. This is our most popular educational option.

ZipGrow™ Towers

ZipGrow™ Towers are at the core of all of ZipGrow systems. They are a specially designed and scientifically proven vertical hydroponic Tower that helps growers maximize production. 

We have a variety of options for you to choose from for your home growing needs!


The FarmWall™ is a small hydroponic system using our patented ZipGrow™ Towers. This easy-to-use system can be hung indoors or out, on walls, fences, or buildings bearing abundant harvests for many varieties of leafy greens, herbs and fruiting plants.


The ZipGarden™ yields the equivalent produce of a 10’x10′ traditional garden right in the convenience of your classroom and within a small footprint. It looks beautiful too. It’s our simplest system to operate and maintain and you can easily pause operation when school breaks for the summer months.
