Gardyn is the first plug-and-play style food growing solution. You simply pop yCubes into the slots and typcially add water and nutrients to the reservoir every few weeks. The Kelby assistant monitors and optimizes growth for you, and tells you when to add water or light. Your job is simply to eat pure, delicious food. Yes, it’s like magic .
Gardyn is designed to grow anywhere. Whether you live in an urban apartment or suburban home, Gardyn only needs two square feet to grow all the produce you need year-round. No sunlight or water outlet required.
People & Animals
As a young adult, I lived in Provence, in the south of France. I still vividly remember the incredible taste of fresh produce. It was easy to find in small markets, harvested just a few hours before, and that made it so great. This reality of my youth is becoming increasingly rare and mother nature is paying a high price. Each day, pesticides and herbicides are dumped on the crops we’re going to eat. Produce is harvested several weeks before it’s ripe and flown or trucked over long distances, making it nearly impossible to get truly fresh and nutritious foods. The outcome? Our collective health is declining; conditions such as obesity and cardiovascular diseases have become prevalent. One death out of five in the world is due to poor nutrition (and not the lack of calories!). The ecosystem is suffering badly as well. It is not too late to course correct and reimagine the future of food, the one we are longing for. However, it requires us to rethink how we grow and source our food.
Better for You. Better for the Planet We, at Gardyn, believe it is urgent we rediscover what food should be about: fresh, tasty, nutritious, easily accessible — and grown in a sustainable manner, every day. At Gardyn, we are reimagining the future of food for the better, for everyone.
This is just the beginning of a revolution in the way we provide easy access to healthy food and a more harmonious lifestyle. This is not just for the better-off, but also to support healthy kids and parents in underprivileged communities, areas that have become food deserts or those where growing fresh produce is beyond reach. Imagine a world where cities host large distributed farming networks, a world where every place (whether your home, an office, a restaurant, or any other public space) has the potential to grow top-quality produce in the most efficient way. Gardyn represents an opportunity to reintroduce nature in urban habitats, to make our cities more sustainable and autonomous, to stop damaging the environment, and to rediscover the meaning of fresh, nutritious and delicious food for all of us every day. Gardyn is decidedly setting a high bar; we are dedicated to developing innovative solutions that will shape the future of food. The environment and our well-being are at stake. Food grown at home reduces the byproducts of factory farming such as pesticide runoff and carbon emissions. Lower demand for factory farmed food can alleviate further damage and offer nature a chance to restore itself. Your Gardyn produces fresh fruits and vegetables that you eat at the height of their nutritional value and taste. Pure, delicious and healthy food is within arm’s reach, is enough to feed the whole family, and easily fits into a busy lifestyle. In the US, 40% of food produced every year goes wasted. This is equilavent to $1800 per year, per person. With Gardyn, that figure becomes zero. Growing food in your home can reestablish a human connection with nature. You see the source of your food from seedling to harvest. Kids are amazed! Eating healthy and delicious meals solidifies bonds with family and friends.
