Lexington, MA (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with Swedish designer to feature Cult Design, kitchen farming self-watering planters. The Grommet is proud to support and feature this innovative, problem solving design for an everyday kitchen.
Growing herbs is less intimidating than one might think, even for a novice gardener. They’re easy to cultivate and don’t need a big investment in time or acreage. Plus, drawing from a personal herb supply is more economical than buying bunches at the grocery store.
With terracotta pots and self-watering reservoirs, Cult Design makes it easy to start a garden right in the kitchen. The Evergreen pots are designed for growing herb plants. Simply keep the lower section filled with water, and a felt strip sucks up water like a wick and allows a plant to absorb all the water it needs. Likewise, for shoots and sprouts, Grow Green is a system of terracotta boxes atop a water-filled base. Pour the seeds into their own terracotta sections, and in about one week, there will be harvest vitamin- and mineral-rich sprouts for salads and sandwiches.
Co-founded by Swedish designer Marita Lord, Cult Design inspires people to bring farming to the kitchen counter. For recipes, teas, essential oils and more, herbs and sprouts are within arm’s reach. It doesn’t get more local than that.
