Local. Organic. Sustainable. We all know how we should be eating–but it’s not always easy or practical. What if there were a way that you could bring the farm to your table? ROOT by Ohneka Farms is a smart countertop garden that grows 16 plants, vegetables, or herbs in one square foot of space, all for under 40 W of power, regardless of space or light limitations. By growing your own, you are harvesting at the peak of freshness and consuming only what you need. You’re also reducing your carbon footprint and food miles, and growing your own also allows you to support rare and heirloom varietals. By supporting ROOT, you are also contributing towards a greater mission: proceeds from the sale of each ROOT will go towards community gardens and alleviating food deserts.
