Smart Grow Kit Spring 2019

How can we use technology to grow our own food?

The rapid growth of urban populations creates challenges for food production. One solution that is potentially more sustainable than current methods is localized production, in particular, food production by individuals at home. Growing food at home is possible, but it is a process that requires motivation, knowledge and skills. The team will work on the design of a sensor platform aimed at helping individuals in urban environments grow food at home by informing them about the needs of their plants and, based on urban farming practices, by connecting them with a network of growers to share knowledge and produce.

This project focuses on the Sustainable Development Goals:
