The Greenhouse at SoDP
The Greenhouse at SoDP was inspired by Disney’s state-of-the-art EPCOT hydroponic Living with the Land ride and will be utilizing the team of the most widely used aeroponic growing system in the U.S., including creator, Tim Blank. The Greenhouse will provide a safe, stress-free, working environment, for our those of ALL abilities including our service members as they transition back into civilian life. The Grenehouse offer life-skills and entrepreneurial training while providing an additional revenue stream for the Park. On the tours of our greenhouse, guests will have the opportunity to embark on the technological and agricultural wave of the future, Aeroponic Vertical Gardening. The application of BOTH indoor and outdoor growing will allow guests to use what they have experienced and eaten to inspire healthy living in their daily lives through the educational tool of sustainable, organic growing, without soil.
No green thumb? No problem! These vertical, aeroponic garden systems allow you to grow your own produce without the learning curve or time commitment of traditional gardening. Grow greens and herbs indoors with the HOME model, or enjoy a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers with the FLEX model. Each model takes up less than 3 square feet.

St. Louis Blues Blind Hockey Club
Ice Hockey for the visually impaired and the totally blind,
SoDP's sister 501c3 non-profit organization.
Blind Ice Hockey is the same exhilarating, fast-paced sport we all know with only one main difference; each player is legally blind. These players have a spectrum of sight from 10% to totally blind. The lowest vision skaters play defense or goalie while the more sighted athletes are forwards. The blind ice hockey puck represents the most significant modification to the sport. It measures 5.5 inches in diameter, and is 2 inches high but weighs about the same as a regular puck. It is both bigger and slower than its vulcanized rubber counterpart. The puck is made of metal and contains ball bearings that create a rattling noise for tracking. Our team is looking for new recruits, of all ages and skill levels. Do you bleed blue?
