Earth Prime is a startup based out of New Orleans that knows every neighborhood may not have space for a thriving green garden, so it developed a standing hydroponic personal garden system that would make fresh produce accessible from the walls of your home.

The solution named iGardenX was specifically designed for those with small spaces, although it could also be of use to restaurants and hotels who want to be able to produce their own greens at a low cost—as it stands, the unit only costs between $300 and $600.

Although hydroponic gardening has taken off for industrial applications, this residential unit is a practical space-saving garden for homeowners who want to cultivate herbs, plants or ornamental flowers. As there is becoming more of a push to eat local, it doesn't get any closer to home than growing your own food.
