Imagine being able to harvest fresh veggies precisely when you need them without leaving the house. That’s the promise of indoor gardens like the OGarden Smart and the Cell One. Now IGWorks is making a bid for your living space with a vertical hydroponics garden called the iHarvest that can simultaneously grow up to 30 fruits and vegetables.
Currently raising production funds over on Kickstarter, the iHarvest requires users to give over just 2.5 sq ft of floor space for the provision of year-round fresh fruit and veg, including leafy greens, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, fruit like strawberries and watermelon and even beans.
“All the existing systems were either too small to grow real food or too ugly to enjoy with your family and friends,” said Dave Stevens of California-based IGWorks. “We knew that the answer lied in hydroponics; however, the existing systems were either unattractive, cumbersome, costly or challenging to use. I wanted an attractive, indoor garden that could easily fit into the smallest apartment, while also providing enough produce to help feed a family year-round.”
