Smart Gardens are the way of the future…

We are all about saving the environment here at Get It Joburg North and were instantly intrigued when we discovered Click & Grow smart gardens, which can fit in any flat or balcony, and allow its user to grow fresh and healthy veggies at their convenience.

We caught up with Moshe Lichtenstein, the owner of a Digital Farming to find out more…

Moshe, tell us how you came across the concept of Digital Farming and what does it mean to you?

I have taken a keen interest in gardening in my spare time, I love spending time in the outdoors and connecting with nature. While growing fresh vegetables at home, I thought the must be an easier way of growing fresh produce that works every time.

As my company Tiptop Trade is always looking for new niche and trending products I came across Click & Grow and the rest is history as they say.

Who would be a candidate for a Click & Grow Indoor Smart Garden?

The Click & Grow Indoor Smart Gardens are sleek, innovative, modern looking and make the perfect gift. They are a great feature in all kitchens in terms of looks and use.

Our indoor gardens have proven to provide people with the perfect starting point of growing their own fresh food and taking back control over what they put in their body. You are what you eat.

You can grow anything you want and pick it fresh any time of the day or night. Add to that that you are eating high-quality nutrient-dense greens at home, and it’s a winner.

Plus, you are wasting less and harvesting more – why not use 95% less water and a faster growing cycle – with no GMO’s and pesticides.

Your biggest mission is to ‘feed the world’. How do you plan on going about making that a reality?

We know technology can help everyone on this planet enjoy healthy, nutritious, vitamin-packed foods without maxing out our planets resources.

Let’s start changing the food industry together by growing our produce sustainably: closer to where our hearts are — closer to home.

Click & Grow is working towards making the most essential, fresh, vitamin-packed food free for everyone on this planet. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy clean fresh food and thrive.

What are the cost factors involved in setting up a smart garden in your house or apartment?

Click & Grow Smart Gardens take care of your plants automatically by making sure they have enough water, light and nutrients at all times.

The user-logic of the Click & Grow gardens is similar to that of Nespresso and Keurig capsule coffee machines only instead of coffee pods, we offer plant capsules with a variety of seeds. Our seedpods are biodegradable and don’t contain any GMO’s, herbicides or pesticides. Clean, fresh, homegrown.

Tell us about the plant pods – how does that work?

Inspired by NASA technology, Smart Soil creates the perfect environment plants need to thrive. It releases nutrients in sync with the plant’s life cycle, keeps soil pH balanced, and employs tiny oxygen pockets to guarantee plants get ample breathing room and nutrients even when the soil is wet.

Choose from a variety of over 50 pre-seeded plant capsules or get our experimental refill and grow anything you’d like!

Fill the tank and the garden will water plants automatically. Special Grow lights will make your plants grow faster. It’s the ultimate set-it-and-forget-it garden system that will grow plants for you with zero effort.
