Hailing from Wyoming, Nate Storey and Paul Bennick [1] founded Bright Agrotech [2] in 2009 to help revolutionize agriculture for small-business farmers and consumers. More recently, they’ve created  modular hydroponic towers [3] and a dual purpose, vertical hydroponic kit [3] which allows anyone to grow a vertical garden. The kit [3] 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 [4] Storey says that he was inspired to make these kits after living in China and seeing inefficiencies in production and distribution. Bright Agrotech [2] 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 [3], they need your help to produce the first production run of these kits. For a $200 pledge [3], you’ll get the Spring System so you can start “growing up” as soon as March of next year.
