pod fogponic garden system by greenfingers


‘pod fogponic garden system’ by greenfingers 

 

conceived by a group of students at the victoria university of auckland, ‘pod’ provides the opportunity for people without,
or limited outdoor gardening space to grow and maintain their own plants, encouraging a healthier lifestyle and adding
a dynamic quality to gardening.

 

the fogponic system encourages users to grow their own herbs and vegetables indoors, by making the process so easy
and automated. the unit allows several ‘pods’ to be joined together in a modular structure, making it suitable for communal
or larger scale use. users are able to remove and exchange the containers with others in the neighbourhood, cultivating a
sense of community bonding and social connections. a person is able to grow a plant from seeds, simply by placing
them on a mesh basket and turning it on.
