Jennifer Broutin is a Media Arts and Science Master’s Degree candidate at the MIT Media Laboratory with the Changing Places group. Her project titled “SeedPod” addresses the problem of sustainable eating for city dwellers who don’t have enough space to grow their own food. The SeedPod is a vertical modular that is scalable in size and can be quickly expanded to accommodate more plants.

The so-called “interactive farming module” uses technology such as sensors, robotic components, and energy capture devices to help users care for the plants. Vegetables and herbs can be grown in this aeroponic system using less soil, fertilizers, and no pesticides.
