Airgarden’s Vertical Garden Creates A Fail-Proof Farm On Your Balcony

June 8, 2021 Sustainable Tourism No Comments

Airgarden, the vertical soilless gardening system that uses revolutionary NASA-developed technology, is putting
farms into the hands of urban dwellers for the first time. The game-changing system allows anyone from a novice to a greenthumb, to sprout five times more home-grown produce, three times faster, with 95 percent less water taking up just one square metre of space.After COVID triggered a boom in demand for homegrown produce, brother and sister powerhouse Tom and Prue
Bauer, decided to take matters into their own hands. Inspired by their passion for sustainably grown produce that
doesn’t harm the environment, the duo set out to find an easy, sustainable solution to grow food at home, regardless
of living space.

Co-founder Prue Bauer says, “The idea stemmed from wanting to grow fresh produce that was good for us, and the
environment, while living in the inner city. We were sick of throwing out so much of what we bought and wanted quality produce that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. More and more people are thinking about what they are putting in their bodies and the cost of organic food was unsustainable long term so we knew there has to be a better solution.”
The pair discovered horticulturist approved aeroponics technology, used by NASA to grow plants in space, and
began repurposing it to allow everyday people to grow their own urban farms with no digging, weeding or watering
required. Airgarden is owned and produced in Australia, keeping the company’s carbon footprint low in line with their ethos. Budding gardeners can sprout up to 150 different types of fruits and vegetables and feed a family of four
weekly – a shop-in-one garden, and a great way to slash grocery costs.

Knowing the challenges of growing greenery for even the most seasoned gardeners, the pair made gardens low
maintenance with no soil and a self-watering system. Airgarden boasts a 99% success rate, making it virtually
impossible for novice gardeners to fail to produce a lush, leafy green food bowl.

Bauer continues, “Everyone is haunted by memories of failed veggie gardens and dying herbs after hours of watering
and digging, so we decided to make growing your own produce at home easy, cost effective and healthy.”
“Most other urban gardens require three times more space, multiple bags of soil and plenty of water. Airgarden caters for people who are a little older or aren’t able to get into the garden and dig and bend over to tend to their garden. If you’re renting then it’s no drama, pick it up and take it with you.”

Since launching during COVID, the Queensland founded brand has continued to grow roots and is widely used in
several restaurants across Australia including award-winning Halcyon House’s Paper Daisy restaurant, Manly
Boathouse, and Wild Canary. It’s a favourite of restaurants, foodies and the sustainability conscious as the garden
allows users to only pick what they need, creating zero waste recipes for a true farm to table experience.

Airgarden has just launched a funding bid on Birchal to turbocharge their growth across Australia.

Airgarden is available online and direct to consumers.
