Steve Koontz setting up a Tower Garden in a classroom

Steve Koontz is an indoor gardening specialist. This includes taking care of potted plants in businesses, plantscape consulting, and growing edibles on a soil-less gardening system called a Tower Garden.

Over 20 years ago, Steve received a free packet of gourd seeds and planted them in a small patch of ground in the front of his house. Not only did the seeds sprout, but the gourd plants took over the driveway and wound themselves into the screen door. That was when his passion for gardening first took root.

In 2012, he moved into soil-less gardening with a Tower Garden – a soil-less gardening system that works well indoors and out and he discovered more about the unique processes behind successfully growing edibles indoors. Since then, he’s helped schools in Indiana and across the country purchase Tower Gardens and has trained teachers on how to effectively use them in their classrooms.

“The Tower Gardens have been a wonderful educational tool for our classrooms,” says Dr. Hoffert, Superintendent of Warsaw Community Schools, “and I appreciate Steve’s work greatly!”

Steve became a Master Gardener in 2015 and began specializing in indoor gardening, which includes potted plants and plantscape consulting, helping people enjoy an inviting atmosphere using plants without the worry of plant maintenance.

In the same way Steve believes God provides the resources in a seed to produce a plant, He’s also providing the resources for him to combine the gardening he enjoys with the teaching he loves.
