Gallery: Biodegradable Pod Garden Makes Planting Fresh Herbs a Snap

The Pod is an eco-friendly compact kitchen herb garden that is made out of biodegradable plastic for growing your favorite herbs in an optimal way! Created and developed by student Joe Bradford, this innovative herb garden requires minimal maintenance and can later be planted directly into the soil when the herbs have reached their maturity and need more space to grow.

Joe Bradford developed the Pod herb garden while he was a student at the Wentworth Institute of Technology. It’s designed to offer an easy way for urban residents to grow herbs and other plants at home. The pod’s low-profile spherical shape easily fits on any kitchen counter, giving you immediate access to herbs while you cook.

Once a set of seeds has matured and outgrown the micro garden, it couldn’t be easily to transplant them – simply drop the oxo-biodegradable plastic shell into a hole in the earth and the plants it contains will flourish. The Pod even acts as its own packaging – it is designed to be sold complete with compressed dirt and seeds!
