Just last week I attended the 28th EFFoST (The European Federation of Food, Science and Technology) conference in Uppsala, Sweden and did some notes.
Today it is estimated that the world population might rise to 10.5bln inhabitants by 2050. As some of us are starving already, it would mean that we would need to produce 75% more food! Yet, we are already using 90% of the arable land on the planet. Since we are losing huge amounts of land due to soil depletion every year, and we don't want to cultivate all parts of the remaining rain forests, we need to seek for solutions.
Ever wondered why your Tomato, Strawberry or Chilli Pepper has so little fruits? The answer is simple - they just need some funny business in their life, too. Some so-called "arrangements" or "romantic hangouts with other plants". Basically, your plants simply need to go out on a date, to give you more of those juicy tomatoes and other goodies. And as weird as it sounds, you need to help them... doing it the plant way. Or actually, the bee way.
As you might now, we just celebrated our 5th birthday on October 20. But we're still in a bit of euphoria (in fact, we just had an actual birthday party just yesterday, so our birthday mood hasn't gone anywhere, and we're still eating cakes for breakfast, lunch an dinner), since this fact is almost unbelievable. Here at Click & Grow, time flies by faster than the blink of a Smartpot, and milestones like these make us stop and look back. So here it is - the history of Click & Grow, revealed.
As it turns out, there is a simple solution for most of your work problems. Something that's not even that magical, but that increases your productivity, focus, makes you happier and more satisfied. - plants!

There are no pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, plant hormones or any other type of poisons used. And we don't need to - a well watered and feed plant with perfect growing conditions can defend itself without any otside help. But we do use additional minerals to feed the plant. So in most countries it cannot be certified as organic.
The Click & Grow garden cannot actually be considered a hydroponic or aeroponic device. The growing medium inside the Click & Grow cassette is not water. It is an elegant matrix with the chemico-physical buffer abilities comparable to the best soils in the world.
A lot of people have been asking where our products can be found in retail stores. We have put together a list of stores with addresses for you guys and we will add new locations in the future. So if you need an awesome gift for a friend, family or yourself, you do not have to wait for the delivery guy anymore but you can go and buy the fabulous Click and Grow from the nearest store around.
Here at Click & Grow we believe the next green revolution will be in farming. The question we put to ourselves when we founded this company was, "How can technology change the paradigm of what it takes to have access to fresh produce in environments that are now considered food deserts?" If you live in a crowded city with very limited space or in an area far from arable land and with limited access to water your current options are limited or very expensive. The technology and purpose behind the Smart Farm is to create a product that can provide...
We’re all familiar with the decorative value of indoor plants. They’re beautiful additions to a room and can help to create a sense of comfort.
