Grow A Microgreen Garden Inside Your Home
SproutsIO is an intelligent gardening system optimizes a plant's growth based on ambient conditions
Microgreens, nutrient-packed seedlings of herbs, seeds and vegetables, have allowed city-locked, backyard-less households to grow their own edible gardens in the comfort of their kitchens or bedrooms. However, for the green thumb impaired, growing microgreens can be tedious and inefficient. SproutsIO, an all-in-one indoor gardening system, streamlines the process of growing indoor microgardens through the intuition of modern technology.
Following a collaboration and prototype development with the NYC Parks Department, founders Jennifer Broutin Farah and Kamal Farah spent three years developing functional prototypes before finding settling on SproutsIO’s current form. The device is being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, with plans to sell the product in 2017.
