About

 What is The Herb Grower?

The Herb Grower is the most advanced and truly easy to use modular vertical garden system that allows you to grow fresh aromatic or medicinal herbs, greens and decorative plants indoor and outdoors.

 With this friendly new system the possibilities are endless:

* With the Herb Grower anyone can grow fresh herbs or greens free of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers and genetic modification even during the winter by taking advantage of natural light and climate control indoors. You can also make your own vertical decorative garden as large or small as you want. 

 * Small spaces can be some of the most difficult environments to squeeze in a garden. But adding plant life to your 'cozy home or work space can make it seem cleaner, brighter, and livelier.

 * This stylish and easy to use system will not only inspire you to work on your green thumb, but also turn your plants into a living work of art, by easily changing plant positions whenever you want to create elaborate patterns of color and shape. The Herb Grower is specially designed for flexibility and this does not exist with any other product on the market.

 * Whether used to grow herbs or to decorate, The Herb Grower is so rewarding and easy to use that it makes the perfect gift for friends and family.

 * Cook like a Chef! A few suitable fresh aromatic herbs can make a big difference in the quality and flavor of your dishes in addition to improving their nutritional values.

* Save money $$$ Packs of herbs from the supermarket are usually not fresh and mostly end up wasted; cut only what you need directly from the plant. 

* Bet the kitchen will smell great.

   * Make your own Herb-Infused aromatic oils or honey.

 * Taking care of and watching your plants grow can be a great hobby and a wonderful educational tool for children.

 * Keeps your edible and decorative plants away from curious pets.

 How does The Herb Grower work?

The Herb Grower uses a system of removable pots and gravity irrigation free of hoses or tubes. 

It is very easy to use, just fill with water the upper container from where it trickles down through all the plants roots. When these are saturated drain excess and is recaptured at the bottom to be reused.

 The pots can be removed easily because they are not connected or attached to anything and this allows you to care, rearrange, manipulate or re-desing your vertical garden very quickly.

 OUR PROGRES and HOW CAN YOU HELP

It has been our mission to create a new system of vertical gardens, more accessible and easy to use for almost two years.  Thankfully after many hours on the drawing board and extensive testing with the prototypes we are very proud of the final result. But for the last stage of this project, which seeks to bring more life and nature to our homes and work spaces we need your help.  Your support will go towards performing the final machining of the injection molds that are unique and also install an assembly line that will let us jump fully into the manufacture.  I´ll be sending you updates with videos of the progress in production to keep you well informed about your very own, very stylish and easy to use vertical garden. We are eager to send the final product as reward to all those who helped make this dream a reality. 

Production Plan 

We have successfully passed the Design Verification Test and Engineering Validation Test, now in the process of tooling the injection molds. The pilot production run starts in January 20015, at that time the quality of the final product will be verified and final adjustments to the molds will be made to ensure proper operation under continuous manufacturing. With this calendar program and thanks to you the manufacture and assembly will begin formally in February 2015.

   Thank you Backers.

As a limited edition, all the reward products will have the kickstarter logo so your vertical garden will be quite unique and everyone will know you helped bring this project to life. ( OPTIONAL )

Previous Works

Risks and challenges

Although the Herb Grower seems a relatively simple product, is composed of 25 pieces that require 9 different injection molds.
We have worked extremely hard to get this product ready for Kickstarter. The design and patent took us almost a year and a year to perform all tests with prototypes and improvements to ensure that the herb grower will perform as it should in the daily use. However any project have risks or unexpected situations to be overcome.
MANUFACTURING: The manufacturing of injection molds is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right.
Up to this point we have made great economic efforts to work with an expert in the manufacture of molds for the automotive industry, this allows us to feel confident in the quality of their work as well as the delivery time.
Fortunately we have already done most of the work with them, we have the full design of molds and raw materials ready for manufacture, the next step is CNC machining. Still we are exposed to situations that may delay the delivery of molds, such as a machine malfunction, delay in the delivery of a specific drill, ect.
For us kickstarter is not only the opportunity to present our project and get help in its last stage to make it happen, but also to form a community of enthusiasts who enjoy the product, growing organic herbs or decorating their homes and work spaces and they could be the ones who initially promote the product with family and friends, we are committed to providing our backers a quality product.
