CounterCrop – A Self-Contained Home Growing System
If you read my blog, you know how much I enjoy sharing the latest technologies and products with you all! I am so blessed to be living in an age where we have the ability to have our lives dramatically improved by these technologies. This is where CounterCrop comes in. When I first saw this product, I knew I had to help spread the word. This ingenious product brings us an old world concept of growing food ourselves and organically and blends it with the latest in new world technologies.
Firstly, please note this post is NOT sponsored. As with all my other posts about the latest and greatest tech gadgets and inventions, I am moved and motivated to share this awesome invention with you!
Now let’s get to the good stuff!
What Is CounterCrop And How Does It Work?
CounterCrop, a self-contained home growing system that makes it simple for people to grow healthy and tasty vegetables right on their kitchen counter, is sparking the â€œGrow It Yourselfâ€ food movement with its newly launched campaign on Kickstarter.
The great news is this project was recently successfully funded!
Why This Product Is Essential To Us Globally
According to world estimates, we need to double food production in order to keep up with population growth explains co-founder, Charles Gillespie. We can’t do that by clear-cutting more forests, wasting millions of gallons of water, and shipping food halfway around the world. To create a sustainable food future, we need to bring production closer to home. In this case, we’ve found a way to bring a little right onto your kitchen counter.
The strong momentum and eager demand among healthy, food-conscious consumers underscore the company’s mission to transform the way the world feeds itself, one salad at a time. By backing and pre-ordering the smart, self-contained growing units, future users can utilize CounterCrop’s powerful growing system, which combines patent-pending LED light technology with the latest advances in horticultural science to grow fresh plants and veggies in 50 easy-to-use, dirt-free growing pods.
In line with our commitment to revolutionizing the way the world gains access to healthy and delicious foods, CounterCrop empowers anyone to grow more abundant vegetables, plants, and herbs in their own homes. Ultimately, it’s the first step to helping people grow food more sustainably green thumb or not, says co-founder, Jack Abbott.
Watching this video will explain it all. The folks at CounterCrop, on a mission to transform the way the world feeds itself…one salad at a time. They state, “As a society, we need to change the way we grow food — to use less energy, water, and land while combatting hunger on a global scale — but it all starts in the home. We fully believe that CounterCrop is a critical first step in transforming the way people feed themselves.”
Below, is another video explaining how CounterCrop works!
Transforming the way the world feeds itself.
CounterCrop units include everything enthusiasts will need to grow a thriving countertop garden: advanced LED light technology that can mimic the sun’s natural lighting patterns (i.e., night and day, seasonality), an automatic Ebb & Flow watering system that delivers the ideal amount of water and nutrients, 50 dirt-free, growing pods all controlled by a handheld smart wireless remote. Growers simply plant their seeds, add water and liquid plant food, and choose from the stages of plant growth on the remote control. CounterCrop does the rest.
See the video below for more details.
