I love my technology, but as some of you may already know, I love my vegetables. Being a Vegan, I miss out on a lot of the food type tech hardware out there. I can’t really get into the iGrill and I sure have no use for a meat thermometer, but I can get behind an Intelligent Garden.
Click & Grow has introduced and launched a Kickstarter campaign today in hopes to bring this smart garden technology from the outside into your gloomy kitchen. We all know growing herbs has something that is outside, or at least sitting in your window. To be able to grow this anywhere will be huge for those of us that love to use fresh herbs instead of spending over9000 dollars on them at the grocery store.
The Smart Herb Garden is a high-tech, self-watering plant system that can grow multiple herbs at once. Click & Grow’s CEO, Mattias Leep says; “With the smart Herb Garden we hope to bring the World one step closer to sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyles…we aim to provide users a fool-proof gardening solution that is simple and intuitive to use at a fraction of the cost of similar products on the market.”
This is exactly what it seems like they plan to do, the Smart Herb Garden will only cost around $5 to run for an entire year. The best part is that no gardening knowledge is required as the technology behind the Smart Herb Garden does all the work for you. Nanotech Material is engineered to supply the plant roots with the right amount of oxygen, water and nutrients at any time as well as keeping it Organic by not using any pesticides, fungicides, hormones or any other kind of harmful substances. The LED lights used in the Smart Herb Garden were created to use a natural-looking light system that is safe for young eyes and that doesn’t look unnatural.
A starter kit will ship with the Smart Herb Garden, giving users the chance to test out basil, thyme and lemon balm. Refill cartridges will be available for chili pepper, mini tomato, strawberries, peppermint, spinach, salad rocket and various kinds of lettuce that can be grown year-round. The Smart Herb Garden is expected to retail for $79, but early pledges of $29 will receive the first Smart Herb Gardens to come off the production line, but hurry, these are limited to only 100 contributors! Many different levels of pledges are available, so please go check it out!
Head on over to the Kickstarter campaign and see if the convenience of growing herbs anywhere and the technology behind it interest you! We definitely hope to get a sample here at GS HQ to grow our herbs!
