The Grove finally started a reservation online to purchace world’s first intelligent indoor gardening ecosystem, after raising $4 million in funding on Kickstarter.
Gabe Blanchet, Grove co-founder & CEO said to CNBC, “Growing your own food in your home is going to be an industry that we’re helping to spawn here.” Several bowls of salad and a few tomatoes and peppers a week, all year round – that’s how much Blanchet says you can expect with a basic Grove system.
Inhabitat explains easily how the whole The Grove Ecosystem works: The fish tank is the core of this human-made ecosystem that serves water and fertilizer for the greenery. The waste fish poop and ammonia becomes nitrate for the plants, while the plants provide clean water back to the fish tank. It creates a full ecosystem where the plants and fish benefit from each other. Furthermore, in-home garden can be monitored and controlled through a mobile applincation, that alerts and guides junior gardener when plants should be harvested or when your fish tank needs more fish or any other care.
