An indoor garden is a dreamy way to amp up the productivity in your office, add extra zen to your bedroom or just jazz up your foodie game with fresh herbs, but understanding the complexity of gardening is tough and there is only so much Miracle Gro you can buy before you give up your dream of an edible garden. Meet Herbert: a hydroponic vertical garden that means you (yes, you), can nurture a gorgeous indoor garden no matter how small your apartment is. This brilliantly designed indoor garden just launched on Kickstarter and is committed to helping you grow fresh food right at home.
Trying to eat a little more healthfully this winter? Herbert says you can get up to 40 percent more harvest than you’d get from growing lettuce in your yard, meaning you can get a fresh salad every four to five days. Craving something sweet? The in-house LED light will let you grow strawberries all year around. Not only is Herbert helping your green thumb flourish, but it also doubles as a cool living wall art installation. It resembles a picture frame illuminated by LEDs that will help you grow a huge variety of vegetables and herbs right there on your walls. Chili, mint, chives, salads, oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, strawberries, thyme and much, much more — Herbert does it all.
The best part? You don’t have to lug a bag of dirt up to your apartment to get this indoor garden started. Herbert works without soil and only requires water — a little less than 10 liters. By using only water to grow your plants, you lose both the mess and the risk of those awful bugs that sneak into your home. The energy-efficient LED lighting means you can grow all year round, because it doesn’t draw a lot of energy. You can even go on vacation and not worry about everything dying, thanks to Herbert’s reservoir of water.
All you need to become a pro-level urban farmer is a seed, a biodegradable sponge, water and bio mineral fertilizer. Add that all into the Herbert garden and start growing. Herbert is available in different wood finishes so it will fit right into your design aesthetic. Get your Herbert now on Kickstarter for around $323 and get ready to grow your next salad.
Whether you’re a new gardener or an old pro who just wants some fresh salad ingredients, Herbert will help you grow the lushest, happiest garden you’ve ever dreamed of. Support Herbert on Kickstarter on February 13, so they can get to production before we manage to kill our last basil plant.
