Hailing from Wyoming, Nate Storey and Paul Bennick founded Bright Agrotech in 2009 to help revolutionize agriculture for small-business farmers and consumers. More recently, they’ve created modular hydroponic towers and a dual purpose, vertical hydroponic kit which allows anyone to grow a vertical garden. The kit also allows local farmers to place mature towers full of living produce directly in peoples homes as part of a CSA subscription.
In an interview Storey says that he was inspired to make these kits after living in China and seeing inefficiencies in production and distribution. Bright Agrotech hopes to help consumers take back agriculture and grow nutritious and sustainable food right in their own homes. With only under two weeks left in their Kickstarter campaign, they need your help to produce the first production run of these kits. For a $200 pledge, you’ll get the Spring System so you can start “growing up” as soon as March of next year.
