Based in Berlin Gruneo has created what it says is the first DIY indoor gardening box with 100% organic materials to make gardening possible in small spaces. The home gardening kit allows you to grow a small-scale organic garden all year round using forgotten spaces such as the windowsill.
Grüneo has developed an indoor box with all the materials and support you need to easily start an indoor garden from the seedling stage. Each box includes 3 varieties of seeds, a natural substrate for the sowing phase, biodegradable wood fiber pots, plant fertilizer, sticks, a Starter Guide for novice gardeners and the Plant Coach online service to offer everyone time to customers a plant diagnosis.
The products, 100% organic, plastic-free, of regional origin and vegan, are now available at a price of €24.90 for a limited time (until March 28) via a crowdfunding campaign on the StartNext platform. The starter guide explains step by step how to grow from seed to harvest and offers a recipe for cooking in varieties of:
- HERB GARDEN BOX – Purple basil, parsley and chives
- VEGGIE GARDEN BOX – Cherry tomato, multicolored pepper and red leaf lettuce
Co-founders Alicia and Lena say their goal is for everyone who lives in the city to “experience the joy of gardening and growing their food locally while living in a big city, in a small apartment.”
