Prototyping An Automated Vertical Gardening System [Part 1]

Looking at a summer back in the office—but don’t want your plants to die? Join us as we reimagine a vertical garden into an automatic gardening system—and let us know what we should add next!

A common problem is when people go on vacation their plants always die. So this solves that problem because it can water itself and you can spin it twice a day for even light coverage, so your plants won’t die.

The Backstory

Just like so many others, Josh and WIll developed a passion for gardening while working from home during quarantine. Now that they are heading back into the office they need a way to keep their beloved plants alive. They noticed many new gardening enthusiasts shared the same concern and, in classic FirstBuild fashion, set out to create a prototype that could help their plants survive and thrive while they were away.

Are you a gardening expert or serious enthusiast? We’re interested in co-creating this product with someone who can help us improve the design and feature set. If you think you are qualified, apply to cocreate this product with FirstBuild. If you are selected, we might send our one-of-a-kind prototype to you to test, provide feedback, and iterate on.
