Grow fresh herbs and veggies year round in your apartment with WindowFarms!
Editor's Note: We're getting into the holiday spirit here at Crisp Green, which means helping you find the crispest, greenest, most innovative gifts for all the tech and design geeks on your list! Check back often, because we'll be featuring a new gift idea almost every day between now and December 25th. Happy Holidays!
Last year we showed you the WindowFarms DIY kit as a great way to grow fresh herbs and veggies indoors and year-round. This year, WindowFarms is back but with a new design and a fully fabricated product. Still providing the same great benefits on an indoor, vertical hydroponic system but much easier to install. Offering a hanging and self-standing model, WindowFarms can fit just about anywhere!
Coolest Thing about WindowFarms: WindowFarms uses hydroponic growing methods rather than soil, so it's lightweight and uses much less water than soil-based growing.
Perfect Gift Idea For: City folk who want to grow their own food but just don't have the space. Great for novices all the way up to experts. Whether you have grown your own food for years or claim to have a "black thumb", WindowFarms is easy to use and maintain for just about anyone.
How You Can Get One: WindowFarms is currently raising funds on Kickstarter for their new design. Just pledge $99 or more and you are all set to grow at home! The Kickstarter campaign ends December 7, 2011 so order soon.
