Grove Ecosystem

Grove EcosystemGardening can be a fulfilling hobby to follow. But it may not be as popular as it once was. Urban living and the lack of available space may make it impossible for people to have garden plots for the plants. The best most can do is take care of plants on garden pots. This may not be an ideal option for people who wish to grow edible plants. For those who really want to try growing their own food in whatever available space they have at home, the Grove Ecosystem may be their best bet.

The Grove Ecosystem is a unique and fun way of trying to grow your own food right inside your home. You can consider it as a smart indoor garden that makes use of different technologies to make you take care of your own organic food garden. Designed similar to a three level cabinet, the Grove Ecosystem provides enough space to house a complete ecosystem of living things. There is a plot area where you can grow plants. The lowest level houses an aquarium where you can take care of fish. This is not just for aesthetics. The aquarium is there to create a natural process called aquaponics which harnesses the relationships between the plants and animals to create a beneficial symbiotic existence. The fishes waste products provide the nutrients for the plants, while the plants process the nutrients in order to clean the waste from the water. This cycle works in the Grove Ecosystem to let you take care of a garden without that much hard work.

In fact, the Grove Ecosystem is an intelligent garden with LED lights and sensors that you can control right from your own smartphone. It comes with an app that allows you to control the different features of your indoor garden. The app also provides a way for people to automate certain tasks with presets as well as a vacation mode for people to set while they may be out of the house for an extended period of time. This  will enable your Grove Ecosystem to virtually take care of itself. But of course, your help is needed to harvest the crops you grow and keep it tidy. The Grove Ecosystem is currently undergoing a crowdfunding campaign at Kickstarter. A pledge of $2,700 will get you Grove Ecosystem, with an expected delivery of around May of next year.
