Describe your product in 3 words.
Innovative. Educational. Fun.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Aquaponics is an ancient form of farming and there were aquaponics kits on the market before our Water Garden. They all seem to be large, expensive and poorly designed. We worked with experts, designers and our community to make this awesome technology fun!
What makes your product special?
The Water Garden is a closed-loop ecosystem that grows food. Using the science of aquaponics, the fish waste naturally fertilizes the plants above and, in turn, the plants clean the water for the fish. All you need to do is feed your fish! It also includes everything you need to get started, including a coupon for your pet Betta. Plus, each time you tag a photo of your #WaterGarden on Instagram or Facebook, and you could win one for a classroom of your choice through our monthly giveaway!
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
It’s really simple - we do what we love with people we love each day! It's been a wild journey - since starting this company in college and going from investment banking/consulting to full-time urban mushroom farming - but we feel so fortunate to be able to work every day towards a mission we love and are so passionate about. We think there is false divide in business - of "not for profits" or "for profit companies" - they should all just be "for purpose"!
