Growth Blanket Helps Urban Gardens Flourish

Toolkit that allows plants and herbs to be grown in cities using just 20% of the space normally required.

Urban farming can seem daunting for most people – especially as most think they don’t have enough money or space to even begin. One company has set out to change that belief – showing just how accessible, enjoyable, and affordable urban farming really is.

Started by earth starter co-founders Phil Weiner and John Gorby, the pair saw empty public spaces as community opportunity zones for mass social and ecological change.

Designed using the square foot method, it’s a great introductory method for both new and experienced gardeners – producing the same results using only 20% of the normal space and resources required.

The package also comes with seedballs – compacted mixtures of clay, compost, and GMO-free seedlings – an easy-to-use solution that doesn’t even require any digging or tilling to get started.

Because the garden systems are pre-cut, spaced, and labeled, gardening is effortless – there is even a built-in irrigation option.

Apart from being easy to use, the mat is also reusable and can last up to 5 years. Users are able to order seedball refills, costing between $1.99-$3.79 depending the number ordered, or $44.95 for a full-season’s worth of 82 seedballs.

The result of all this effort – of which there is virtually none – is an urban garden that can produce plants and herbs to meet all your cooking needs.
