Many of us today are urban dwellers, and though we love to be surrounded by the sights and sounds of the city, it does not allow us to have flourishing gardens and the chance to fully embrace an organic lifestyle that you would find outside of the city. The AquaSprouts Garden is a project we came across on Kickstarter that brings a garden indoors in an educational and stylish way. Whether you want to embrace gardening for the health benefits, family bonding or just a way to learn something new this gardening system is great for any home.

“The AquaSprouts Garden stylishly combines your aquarium and garden into a sustainable, desktop ecosystem.”

How it Works: “Both practical and appealing, the AquaSprouts Garden is a unique product that uses aquaponic technology in a simple, compact design. Aquaponics is a closed-loop system in which fish and plants work together to create a sustainable ecosystem. When the fish are fed, they create waste that is pumped into the AquaSprouts grow-bed. Naturally occurring bacteria then break down the waste and saturate the grow-bed with nutrients— producing strong, healthy plants all while cleaning the water for the fish.”

Learn more about the AquaSprouts Garden on Kickstarter and the official website. You can also follow them and their Kickstarter progress on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

edynGardening is an art unto itself . For those of us that might not have a green thumb but enjoy gardening, the Edyn smart gardening system is our garden’s new best friend. This well designed piece of equipment takes the guess work out of gardening and gives you real-time updates about what is happening in your garden and what exactly it needs to not only survive but thrive.

“The Edyn smart garden system lets you know what’s happening in your garden at all times. Whether you’re a novice gardener or managing a small-scale organic farm, Edyn is there to take the guesswork out of gardening. Inserted in the soil, the Edyn Garden Sensor gathers and analyzes data about changing weather and soil conditions. The Edyn App displays this data as a real-time snapshot of your garden, and pushes alerts and suggestions to maximize plant health.”

We love to see companies giving back and making a difference… Edyn is offering a Buy One/Give One tier on its Kickstarter campaign. For $175, you can get one Garden Sensor for yourself and Edyn will donate one to a Slow Food Garden in the U.S. or Africa.

You can also follow Edyn on Facebook & Twitter!
