3..2..1… and liftoff! Your mission begins.

This summer, for the very first time, you can do science with Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and NASA from your own home! As part of the Growing Beyond Earth  team, you will grow vegetables in the same type of garden the astronauts use on the International Space Station (ISS). The discoveries we make this summer may benefit generations of future astronauts.

Join a nationwide team and help discover new ways to grow food on Earth and in space. Wherever you are this summer, you can create your very own space garden and bring us closer to exploring the solar system.
