Project: Microgarden growing Kit Client: INFARM
The Microgarden kit contains a reusable and renewable sheet of plastic which folds into a self-contained greenhouse. It uses transparent seaweed based agar-agar gel as a growing medium, and it has many benefits. It allows the Microgarden to remain self-contained – which means you will never have to water the microgreens. Their roots absorb moisture from the gel. The clear gel also allows the home-farmer to see and experience the whole growing process, from when the seeds sprout to the roots growth.
The greenhouses’ walls cut the agar-agar gel in to six slices of still living greens. So you 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. To use the kit, start by folding the greenhouse. Boil water and mix in the agar-agar powder, then pour the mix into the open greenhouse. Sprinkle the seeds, close the Microgarden and wait. After 5-14 days your microgreens are ready to be enjoyed!
