Home cooks get some indoor green thumb help

start-up-idea-urban-cultivatorAnyone with a bit of extra space in their kitchen may want to consider picking up the Urban Cultivator Home, a standalone indoor garden in a box.

 

The North American design, which is roughly the same size as a bar fridge, offers a convenient way to grow herbs and small plants inside the house.

 

Each unit comes with a detachable solid maple block top, designed to blend in with your kitchen, and caster wheels for easy portability.

 

“Our goal is to take hydroponic growing where no company has gone before,” the company says on its website.

 

“From basements and backrooms to a focal point of any proud chef’s kitchen: Local is the way to go.”

 

“Now you can have an active hand in the food your loved ones eat no matter where you live.”

 

In addition to reducing energy costs, the Urban Cultivator Home offers a healthier alternative – fresh-cut greens have twice the nutritional value of store-bought greens.

 

Imagine how popular this device would be in commercial kitchens and schools. Why not cultivate something similar?
