We are proud funders of Grove. The Ecosystem is their first product. It launched Tuesday morning on Kickstarter. The Grove Ecosystem is an intelligent, indoor garden that helps people grow fresh, flavorful, and nutritious food year round. The Ecosystem uses fish and plants to reliably grow delicious produce - including vegetables, herbs and small fruits - in a space the size of a bookshelf. Along with our Grove OS app, this engaging and beautiful system gives everyone a green thumb. We funded them when Gabe showed us his plans to make Groves as ubiquitous as refrigerators. The technology and plant growth knowledge is rapidly improving (efficient LED lighting and better monitoring and control systems) Let me know what you think?

@msuster Thanks for posting this and funding. Looks really awesome. I really like the ecosystem approach and think products like this have the potential to truly impact humanity. Engineered ecosystems will be a huge part of our survival as we continue to put more of a strain on the carrying capacity of the Earth. Also, if you haven't already @gblanchet3, you might want to talk to the guys over at Fishbit. @naterock101 is a smart guy. They're working on a way to monitor, control, and automate Aquariums.

Hi Product Hunt! Mark - thank you for posting (and funding!) I'm Gabe, Co-Founder and CEO of Grove. We launched the Ecosystem today and have been humbled by the support and # of orders over the first few hours. I am here to answer any questions!

We're investors in Grove and it's been great watching them change the way we think about indoor gardening. They've already run a successful pilot in Boston, very excited to see them launch to the public through Kickstarter. We've got a Grove here in Galvanize Boulder and the fresh mint and other veggies are great!

@fletchrichman That explains why I've seen Grove's at Galvanize in both Boulder and SF... :) Congratulations on the launch, Grove team!

@jedc yup :). They are hosting in person parties at all our locations, will be cool to see how those events impact the kickstarter.

I've been following Grove since your early days at the GFSA: amazing team, great vision, it's a winning combination. If I had some room in my apartment, I'd be in the first backers.

This is so much more attractive than the franken-system my partner is putting together to do aquaponics in our home. Well done!
