Customers will be able to choose which produce they want to grow, what soil is best for it, and what type of pot they would like. We are not only selling the convenience of growing your own organic fresh produce, but are selling the experience of becoming an urban organic farmer in large metropolitan areas.

The pot will be a “smart” pot that will be able to detect what type of plant is growing in the pot, how much water it needs and how long until the desired produce is ripe for gathering from the plant.

Second, we plan to offer a curriculum to schools with the smart pot so that schools can promote the product to the student while providing a rich educational experience to students on the importance of growing a sustainable food source in the future with a growing population. Finally, we plan to automate many of the function on the smart pot to allow customers, from many areas and backgrounds, to access and utilize the pot to grow their own food while not having to be a full time farmer.
