Tim Blank - Chief Technology Officer
Horticulture degree from Valencia College and career as Chief Horticulturist
for the Land Hydroponic Greenhouses at Walt Disney World Company led Tim and
his wife, Jessica, to start Future Growing in 2006. Future Growing’s
mission was to make vertical farming and fresh local produce available to all.
To make this happen, the Future Growing team identified the Tower Garden
technology as the best vehicle to accomplish the mission.
In addition to further developing the Tower Garden technology
and product line at Future Growing, Tim invented a first of its kind,
one-size-fits-all hydroponic mineral blend that allows for a wide range of
fruits and vegetables to successfully grow in Tower Garden. On the commercial
side, Tim invented the commercial farming system for Tower Garden and in 2012
patented a next-gen rotating aeroponic Tower system.
The Juice Plus+ Company partnered with Tim and Jessica Blank to
bring this technology to an even broader audience. Today, Tim serves as Chief
Technology Officer of the Tower Garden division of The Juice Plus+ Company.
