"GET-A-GAAT" Program Gives Consumers Low Cost High Tech Growing System With Free One to Returning Military and Older Veterans

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- FUNDING VET BENEFITS WITHOUT UNCLE SAM PAYING
Seed Supercharger System Grows Anything in Plain Sight or with Stealth

Orlando (FL)… Announcing a new approach in funding veteran benefits without the government or the VA, the nonprofit Veterans Urban Farming Initiative will provide a consumer version of a “soil-less” growing system to be offered on the ecommerce site of one of the world’s largest retailers. Sales will directly fund free distribution of systems to returning military and older veterans. Rechanneling retail profit to assemble systems, and award them to veterans marks a new approach in providing veteran benefits.

Originally developed for use by deployed troops in remote areas to supplement the taste of “MRE” rations with fresh produce and herbs, the low cost, highly efficient vertical Grow Anything Anywhere Tower (“GAAT”) uses a high powered nutrient in a 12 inch footprint to supercharge plant growth. It automatically waters itself without electricity or pumps and costs a fraction of commercial soil-less” growing systems. Assembled without tools in 20 minutes it requires no prior agriculture knowledge, allowing consumers to enhance menu planning and increase nutritional intake. Also included is a high tech germination system for quickly growing all kinds of seeds.

“GAAT” systems are already on station at some American Legion Post kitchens to provide enhancement to congregate feeding activities in Florida and Georgia.

Working with the CEO Clubs, a 6000+ business leadership group that mentored creation of the “back office” aspects, an alliance of nonprofits headed by HOPE was able to encourage one of the nation’s largest retailers to offer a consumer version of the “GAAT” for sale on its ecommerce site.

"That means everyday consumers can quickly grow fresh produce and herbs without concern from neighbors or their HOA, enhance meal planning, and perhaps benefit from reduction in long term health care cost through better nutrition while helping veterans. The linkage between the public and private sectors to provide those who defend our freedoms with a free benefit makes it possible without asking Uncle Sam to underwrite it," said Joel Griffing, Founder of The Hope Collection.

D.L Ward, Co-President of CEO Club Florida Chapter sees the retargeting of something originally intended for military use to benefit civilians as “in the greatest tradition of American free enterprise. It realistically brings to the table a way to reduce food purchase costs which is of particular concern to many veterans while enabling both veterans and the public to benefit.”

Veterans can apply for a free “GAAT” system and the public can order one for home use which also provides a free system to a veteran at http://www.thehopecollection.com.
