Grow.Bar is made from solid wood, a renewable resource. We are planning to offer these options: Beech, Maple, Bamboo & Birch- letting you express your style while harnessing your green thumb.

 

For Grow.Bar’s electronics, we’ve teamed up with TinyCircuits, an electronics company based in Akron, Ohio. TinyCircuits designs and manufactures electronic products in their own production facility in Akron, and they have previously ran and fulfilled three Kickstarter campaigns of their own. They also have thousands of customers in over sixty countries!

Grow.Bar was created based on Founder Chef Torsten Schulz’s experience as a chef, farmer and consumer. Chef Torsten Schulz created Grow.Bar to help place the power of fresh herbs & microgreens in the hands of the home gardener and cook.

Chef Torsten Schulz is a European-trained chef with a Michelin star rating for his work at Restaurant Sao Gabriel in Portugal. Schulz has cooked in kitchens around the world, including Southern California’s Beverly Wilshire, CP Steak in Las Vegas, Lespinasse in Washington, D.C., Armani/Nobu in Milan, Italy and the Swissotel in Dalian, China. Chef Torsten has also been involved in commercial horticulture since 2002 and has gained extensive knowledge on using, growing, and distributing. He realized that people who cooked at home wanted access to restaurant quality ingredients without the demands of a garden or the expense at the specialty store. As a result, he developed Grow.Bar for everyone interested in eating a healthy balanced diet.

Chef Adam Kenworthy is a Chef, culinary consultant and health coach based in New York City. Chef Adam emphasizes nutritious foods, light cooking and a healthy lifestyle. He works with clients to understand their nutritional needs and creates custom menus with organically grown foods and the freshest local market ingredients. He started adding microgreens to all of his dishes because he understood the nutritional impact in using even the smallest amount. You will be able to enjoy Chef Adam's creations and his inspiring approach to creating healthy foods through our Grow.Bar community.

Carole Radziwill is a writer and TV personality. She is a self-proclaimed “junk food-eating gal.” Her idea of the perfect food was a slice of cheese pizza at Joe’s on Carmine Street. She turned her kitchen into an office and routinely used her oven to store books. Then, nearly two years ago, she met Adam, a plant-based chef. Although she still enjoys chips and carbs, she has slowly started to change her life-long eating habits. She is now the proud owner of a Grow.Bar and enjoys the wonderful dishes Adam creates with it.

You don’t have to be a chef to use microgreens. With the help of Grow.Bar, every home cook can make restaurant quality dishes at home. Grow.Bar was developed by Chef Torsten Schulz with an everyday user in mind. You don’t have to be a Top Chef to use the Grow.Bar, but your meals will certainly seem like you are! This system is great for parents, kids and teachers alike who like the idea of getting back in touch with food. We are chefs and will help our Grow.Bar community along the way.

Risks and challenges

We have a working model that we have tested and grown with for over 8 months. We like the current version, but have identified methods to decrease weight, costs and time to manufacture. With a successful campaign, we will implement the changes and make our current system even more awesome, more appealing and easier to use.
