Tomorrow Machine’s Microgarden is a microgreens greenhouse for the tabletop, a reusable and renewable sheet of plastic which folds into a self-contained miniature greenhouse.
Details: The Swedish design studio partnered with the Berlin-based indoor farming start-up INFARM to develop the indoor growing kit. The Microgarden uses transparent seaweed based agar-agar gel as the growing medium which allows the Microgarden to remain self-contained – which means no watering is required.
The microgreens’ roots absorb moisture from the gel and the clear gel also allows the home-farmer to see and experience the whole growing process, from when the seeds sprout to roots growth.
The greenhouses’ walls cut the agar-agar gel in to six slices of still living greens, so the microfarmer can choose to have only one slice or to put the whole greenhouse directly on the table to serve from.
The kit comes as a flat pack that consists of three items; a foldable greenhouse, organic seeds and agar-agar powder. After set-up, it takes 5-14 days for the micro greens to be ready. Funding now on indiegogo.
