Now everyone can grow their own veggies and herbs


One of our nation’s most pressing issues is the production of sustainable and healthy food supplies. A company called Earth Starter has created a solution that makes it incredibly easy for anyone to grow their own vegetables and herbs. Nourishmat is a gardening system “designed for people with small spaces and limited time.” It is essentially a four-by-six-foot tarp with labeled holes cut out, custom-made seed balls, and an option for a built-in irrigation tube. “People need not only an affordable solution, but also education and resources,” says co-founder Phil Weiner, who found that one of the biggest barriers to gardening was in education. In light of that discovery, Earth Starter focuses on working with local schools to create edible schoolyards and neighborhoods. Check out their Kickstarter campaign here.
