Healthy, Home-Grown Food Just Got So Much Easier
Thanks to the innovative Eden Garden from Hope Innovations, you can have your kale, and eat it, too! No green thumb necessary for this modern green technology.
Welcome to the Eden Garden, a personal hydroponic system that allows you to grow healthy, delicious produce right in your home. The Eden Garden is built on the principles of convenience, affordability, sustainability, and wellbeing. HOPE stands for Hydroponic Optimized Personal Environments. Unlike other expensive and complicated systems, the Hope Innovations Eden Garden is a foolproof system that takes minutes to set up, and requires less than 15 minutes of maintenance per month. With no green thumb required, anyone can grow produce as fresh as it is delicious! And thanks to this indoor gardening system taking your produce from seed to plant in your own kitchen, you’ll know exactly what you’re putting on your plate.
You’re making a healthy dinner. You get in the car and drive ten minutes to the grocery store. Once you’ve parked, you get a cart, and begin the journey up and down the produce aisles. At every stop, you weigh the financial expense of organic produce against the health-related costs of eating produce that may be covered in harmful chemicals. You try to decide how much you should buy, because you don’t want anything to go to waste. You come home, prep your meal, and hope the produce on your plate is as chemical-free as advertised. Then you sit down to dinner, and dwell on the irony of paying more to eat food pulled from the ground, instead of processed in a factory.
Now, imagine this:
You’re making a healthy dinner. You turn around in your kitchen and lean over your Eden Garden. All of your essential ingredients are ready and waiting, and you pick off just as much fresh produce as you need. You prep your meal and sit down to enjoy a garden-fresh, delicious dinner, completely comfortable with knowing exactly what is on your plate.
Tracing A Clear Path from Plant to Plate
Healthy food is hard to come by. Farmers, government agencies, and health-conscious individuals have been searching for solutions to keep produce nutritious and chemical-free for years. Unfortunately, the nature of an outdoor growing environment means vegetation is subject to climate changes, weeds, quick ripening, bugs, pests, and animals. This leads to the spraying of harmful pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives. These chemicals seep into food, and cannot be simply washed off. When you consider the destructive effects of constantly eating chemical-laced foods, it’s enough to make you feel sick.
That’s where organically grown foods have come in. Thanks to new health education and awareness, the movement toward organic food has been increasing exponentially in recent years. However, organic growers and farmers have to battle the same environmental factors other producers do. This is why even produce labelled as “organic” still comes with a certain level of chemicals. These chemicals are advertised as “natural”, but that doesn’t necessarily make them safe for human consumption in large amounts. The reality is, most of us are completely unaware of what kind of toxins our produce is exposed to before it reaches our plates.
In the end, the only way to know exactly what your produce has been subject to, and exactly what you are fueling your body with, is to grow it yourself. The Hope Innovations Eden Garden helps you achieve this without all the challenges of outdoor gardening.
The main benefit of a hydroponic system is the indoor growing environment, which is free from the adverse effects of weather and wildlife. However, as the lack of available hydroponic systems goes to show, growing food without soil is not an easy process either. All of the hydroponic systems we tested before creating the Eden Garden prototype had one fatal flaw: the need to grow seeds in soil and then transfer the plants into the system. The harsh process of transplanting meant only the hardiest of plants could survive. We were very disappointed with the results, because if the system doesn’t work for people, then they’re just as far away from eating whole, pure foods as they ever were.
We needed to solve this problem, and we did. Unlike the systems we tested, our prototype had an incredible success rate! All the complicated variables of hydroponic growing were considered by our team, and integrated into a system that is easy to use, and virtually failsafe. The science behind the Eden Garden allows you to take your plant from seed to full growth, all within the space of a single cup, with no need for transplanting. This cup is no ordinary cup; the patent pending design is an exclusive technology, and the secret to the success of the entire Eden Garden System. The cup acts as a nursery for seeds, nurturing your plant through the entire growth process in a way no other system can mimic. The patent pending cup technology is also the reason the system is virtually effortless; getting started is as easy as dropping a seed into a cup. Then just add water, plug it in, and watch your plants grow.
Thanks to the adaptable environment inside the cup, you can also steer clear of GMOs, and customize your plants by choosing your own seeds. Whether you want to plant something chosen from your local greenhouse, your last harvest, or a selection from your summer garden during the colder winter months, the Eden Garden will take your chosen seeds to full growth. Unlike other systems that force you to buy their seeds, the Eden Garden is friendly to all plants. This is just one more way you’ll know exactly what you are growing and eating.
And, of course, the Eden Garden is completely chemical-free. The only substances your plant will be soaking up are water and nutrients. What could be greener than food produced with 100% natural materials? The Eden Garden is a system that leaves no uncertainty about what’s in your greens. It allows you to take control of your food, and by extension, your health.
The Hope Project: Clean, Healthy Eating for Everyone
Traditional farming means growing food for millions of people. Growing for yourself and your family is much more manageable. The compact nature of the Eden Garden means you won’t have to clear out a room for an indoor garden. Even if you live in an apartment or condo with no outdoor space and limited indoor space, you can grow your own healthy produce. The size of the Eden Garden allows virtually anyone the luxury of a garden, without all the hassle of maintaining plants in an unstable environment. With up to 24 plants that will be fully grown and self-replenishing, you’ll have a perfectly-sized indoor garden to sustain your healthy eating habits.
Best of all, you no longer have to weigh the financial expenses of healthy eating against the financial costs. We firmly believe that fresh, nutritious food should be available to all people, regardless of their income. The Eden Garden is helping take a step in the right direction by providing a system that doesn’t cost thousands of dollars, or use enormous amounts of water and power for operation. In fact, with the money saved on produce in a few short months, the system pays for itself. This is the dream behind the Hope Project: healthy, home-grown food for all.
“At Hope Innovations, we firmly believe that every person deserves access to healthy food, regardless of income.”
We plan to turn our HOPE into real change in Alberta, across the country, and even across the globe. Stay tuned for our Hope health initiatives, which will bring fresh, nutritious food to tables in low-income households.
