Smart Homes Now! supports sustainability systems and program. We love the Noocity’s Growbed as it allows you to grow plants and vegetables easier.
But what if you can grow some of the vegetables and fruits inside your home? Well, someone just made it real. And you’ll use an Aquarium filled with fish to help it grow. How? Check out the details below.
MIT Engineers created the Grove Ecosystem. It’s a fun, beautiful way for you to grow fresh food in your home, all year long. With the Ecosystem, it’ll help more people grow and eat sustainable, organic, and hyperlocal food.
According to the makers, the Grove Ecosystem is an intelligent, indoor garden that makes it possible to grow fresh, flavorful, and nutrient-rich food year round.
The Ecosystem uses fish, plants, and beneficial microbes to reliably grow delicious produce – including vegetables, herbs, and small fruits – in a space the size of a bookshelf. It lets you control lights, fans, and pumps and provides air temperature, humidity, water temperature, and water level sensors.
Through the mobile app, Grove OS, you’ll not only be able to control and automate the Ecosystem, but access decades of indoor growing knowledge which will in turn allow you to grow the healthiest, freshest produce for you and your family.
The Ecosystem ships with everything you need to get up and running immediately. Grove OS helps users through the entire process – from planting your first seeds, to adding fish to your tank, to harvesting your first crops. As your seeds turn into sprouts and your plants become ready to harvest, Grove OS measures the health of your system and lets you know when to step in. In just a month and a half you can expect to be harvesting fresh, organic produce.
You can grow a lot of great vegetables like spinach, herbs, tomatoes, beans, peppers and more. Just don’t expect to grow fruit bearing trees or vegetables like big cabbages or bottle gourds.
It’s still a Kickstarter project and it has already met its funding goal. You can support it or get one yourself. For more information, visit Kickstarter.com or click here
