If a greater assortment of tools were available to do the job, it's likely that more people would take up home gardening projects. The Planto System was a clever product of the Eating Sustainably initiative Design for Change challenge, showing everyday Torontonians that it isn't difficult to grow your own food.

Wesley Chau developed a collection of planters that serve to support the cultivation of vegetables and herbs from the earliest stages of sprouting to the later phase of harvesting. The plants that begin to flourish in the small, gridded compartments of the shallow box can be moved to the larger flower pots. These elements of the Planto System have been made from beautiful bent wood frames that are lined with molded pulp or PET fabric.
