edyn has announced a connected gardening system on kickstarter that allows users to create, interact with and nurture their gardens. the solar-powered sensor tracks sunlight, moisture, nutrition levels, and other environmental factors that affect the overall health of your plants, sending the info in real time to your phone. founded by soil scientist jason aramburu and designed in collaboration with designer yves behar and his company fuseproject, the edyn smart garden system is the product of many years of research in farming communities in panama and kenya. ‘edyn was created with the belief that understanding our environment is the first step towards conserving it,’ said aramburu. ‘it represents our commitment to helping gardeners of all levels have the best success possible in not only growing plants but creating a thriving garden and being part of a community of like-minded growers. we’re using hardware and data to deliver actionable insights that’ll help those gardeners achieve their goals.’

by measuring and quantifying environmental data, edyn enables users to more efficiently manage our precious natural resources like water, soil and organic fertilizer. the garden sensor constantly monitors its environment and learns exactly what your plants need. it is compatible with vegetable, fruit, herbal, decorative and medicinal plants. the water valve delivers the right amount of water to your plants without waste. together, these tools help you improve your garden and your environment. ‘inserting into the earth like a shovel or stake,’ says behar. ‘the edyn garden sensor industrial design creates a visual bridge between nature and technology that seems to blossom out of the earth.’

the garden sensor inserts into your soil, reading nutrient levels, moisture, sunlight, and other external factors that affect the overall health of your plants. the edyn app displays this data as a real-time snapshot of your garden, and pushes alerts and suggestions to maximize plant health.

edyn contains a database with thousands of plant varieties and soil conditions. its machine-learning algorithm analyzes live sensor data on the device and in the cloud. the garden sensor and water valve are both solar powered, but also use a lithium-polymer battery should the solar reserves run low.
