The Benefits of Growing Your Own Food
What does brown on your greens mean? It means they are loosing essential vitamins and nutrients. Greens can loose 50-90% of their nutrients within less than 48 hours from harvest. Why does fresh produce taste so much better? It's because it's packed with nutrients!
Don't waste your money on groceries that are wasting away. Nurture yourself and your family with fresh, nutrient-rich food year-round. The VerdeGarden is the food solution for busy households.
How We Started
At the time, founder, Jen was living in a townhouse in a very shady location. Our balcony received about 4 hours of sunlight and it was full of containers of veggies. There was no room to sit down! Jen started researching vertical gardening and came across hydroponic living walls. She asked herself, why not grow food instead of ornamental plats this way? And that was the beginning of designing the VerdeGarden.
One of our early prototypes bought and tested by early adopters in 2015:

Refinements to the VerdeGraze came following feedback from our early adopters. Jen moved from her townhouse with shady balcony to an apartment with no balcony, reinforcing the need for an indoor garden.
