So you want to grow your own garden, but you think you don’t have enough time or space in your yard to do it. Nourishmat, an easy-to-use garden grid, allows you to grow your own vegetables, herbs, and flowers in little time and space, and it requires very little effort.
The four-by-six-foot Nourishmat is pre-cut and labeled so that you don’t have to do it. It embraces bio-diversity with 19 different plant varieties, selected for their compatibility, that can be grown on the same mat. The reusable mat comes with 82 seedballs — clay and compost mixtures that contain seeds and protect them from harsh environments and pests — a planting guide that tells you where and when to plant them, and an optional built-in irrigation system. With pre-planted seeds, there’s no need for digging or tilling.
Growing an herb garden is just as easy. The two-by-six-foot Herbmat is based on the same garden system as the Nourishmat. This mat comes with 32 seedballs for planting eight herb varieties.
With these inexpensive gardening systems, you can eat healthy without worrying about where the food came from or if it contains genetically modified ingredients. Not to mention you get the personal satisfaction from growing it yourself.
Both gardening systems are being funded on Kickstarter with a goal of $70,000.
