What is the project goal and who is the project for?
FOR THE BEGINNER AND THE PROFESSIONAL. No matter how much time, space or know-how you have in the field of herb or vegetable cultivation - URGROW helps you and supports and accompanies you from sowing to harvest.
A PIECE OF NATURE IN EVERYDAY LIFE. No matter if you cook every day, or if you only prepare big menus from time to time - URGROW enables you to have continuous availability and harvest - so you get real freshness on your plate, and in natural quality!
Why would you support this project?
URGROW produces the indoor gardens from 95 percent recycled materials in Germany. The biodegradable body consists mainly of wood waste, the built-in electronics are completely recyclable. Traditionally, inorganic planting substances and chemical fertilizers are used in the hydroponics technology.
URGROW has further developed this technology and dispenses with questionable substrates of rock wool or plastic. Instead, the seed cones offered are made of BrightSoil®.
The specially developed organic medium can easily be disposed of as organic waste after use. BrightSoil® already contains all the nutrients required by the plants, making chemical fertilizers superfluous.
95% water savings
save cultivation land
no toxic chemicals
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
If the funding target is met, we will deliver the first URGROW systems in May 2021.
A URGROW system, including a BrightSoil® seed cone set, will be available for 249.00 euros, in regular sales.
Your support will help us to complete the design of the systems and speed up the production of the small series, as we can reach the minimum order quantities of our suppliers.
